The Kingdom of Kouper is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 632 million Kouperians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gyejua. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Kouperian economy, worth 21.9 trillion koups a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 34,595 koups, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, and ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Kouperian pirates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kouper's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kouper is ranked 8,246th in the world and 94th in The Free Nations Region for Most Influential, scoring 6,296 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
