The Cookie-Loving Republic of King Koopa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Bowser Bernard Junior with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.667 billion Koopa Troops are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowser City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.3%.

The strong a Koopa Troop economy, worth 159 trillion Mario Coins a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 59,845 Mario Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 169,170 per year while the poor average 16,938, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, glamping Koopa Troops won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Koopa's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Unknown.

King Koopa is ranked 67,732nd in the world and 2,176th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 54.93 on the Human Development Index.
