Cooperovia

The Dominion of Cooperovia is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.533 billion Cooperovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cooperovian economy, worth 867 trillion Dibbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 156,834 Dibbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, the nation leads The East Pacific in per capita stalking, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cooperovia's national animal is the Purple crested fruit eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cooperovia is ranked 168,625th in the world and 7,460th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 1.86 Prayers Per Hour.
