The Constitutional Monarchy of Coin Lands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 741 million Coin Landsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Coin Landsian economy, worth 22.8 trillion Coins 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 Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 30,797 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, the government pours millions of Coins into rehabilitation programs annually, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coin Lands's national animal is the White Tail Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Coin Lands is ranked 107,196th in the world and 248th in Forest for Most Extreme, scoring 18.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
