The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its closed borders, teetotalling pirates, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.398 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 98.6%.

The large but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 106 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 8,611 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, the horniness of the great-horned Octopus is considered a national priority, love is a precious butterfly to be crushed under diplomatic protocol, and Bambi has been banned. 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 155,628th in the world and 10th in Kiwicards for Most Influential, scoring 30 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
