The Gridlock Imperium of Kooplaland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucas Benka with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.519 billion Gridlockans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toronto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.0%.

The powerhouse Gridlockan economy, worth 125 trillion Zars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 82,453 Zars, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is pouring funds into the nation's welfare system, bicyclists are banned from major roads, Lucas Benka has just been declared ruler of Kooplaland in an international press conference, and Benkadoz Pinkism has been named as Kooplaland's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kooplaland's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Benkadoz Pinkism.

Kooplaland is ranked 26,236th in the world and 1,256th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,413.52 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
