The Imperial Technocracy of Copelandea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Scott Copeland II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.642 billion Copelandeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lundahl City. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Copelandean economy, worth 621 trillion Purple Points a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,611 Purple Points, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and former slave-owners hope there are no hard feelings when they apply for jobs from their erstwhile charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Copelandea's national animal is the Worm On String, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Leoism.

Copelandea is ranked 176,505th in the world and 12th in Gruccigangia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -2.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
