The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.971 billion Copercians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The large but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 136 trillion Coperciums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 9,797 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and sushi is sold on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Copercia's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a major religion.

Copercia is ranked 54,566th in the world and 1,612th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,744.82 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
