The Dictatorship of Cool game nation is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Doherty with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.825 billion Cool game nationians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cool game nation City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cool game nationian economy, worth a remarkable 2,547 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 437,352 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,395,496 per year while the poor average 104,200, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

Religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, and tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cool game nation's national animal is the Flamingo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Cthulhu.

Cool game nation is ranked 13,784th in the world and 796th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.11 on the Human Development Index.
