The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its fear of technology, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.349 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 97.6%.

The sizeable but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 78.3 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 7,568 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, bilingual Copercians are viewed with suspicion, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. 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 23rd in the world and 1st in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 62,819.66 Prayers Per Hour.
