The Gayboys of Cooming is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.117 billion Coomingians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Coomingian economy, worth 195 trillion coom bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 174,906 coom bucks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,283,029 per year while the poor average 7,309, a ratio of 175 to 1.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, dining out often involves Coomers on the plate no matter what you order, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cooming's national animal is the Coomer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cooming is ranked 233,383rd in the world and 9,699th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 43.57 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
