The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, avowedly heterosexual populace, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.914 billion Copercians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The sizeable but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 98.1 trillion Coperciums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 8,232 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, Leader lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Copercia's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a major religion.

Copercia is ranked 208,711th in the world and 8,437th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -32.53 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
