The Dictatorship of Cool game nation is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Doherty with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.756 billion Cool game nationians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 93.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cool game nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,725 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 480,400 Bitcoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,881,493 per year while the poor average 13,384, a ratio of 290 to 1.

Politicians live in luxury, failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine John Doherty is punishable by death, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and it is written that repentant sinners are most blessed by John Doherty. 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 336th in the world and 13th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 14,979.43 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
