The Queen's State of Cole County is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 33.896 billion Cole Countyians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The powerhouse Cole Countyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,538 trillion betales a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 45,384 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,647 per year while the poor average 9,257, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The Governor has just been declared ruler of Cole County in an international press conference, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Cole County's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cole County is ranked 37,534th in the world and 4th in Missouri for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 104.2 on the Hayek Index.
