The Copper States

FaithWe banned it


The Scientocratic Oligarchy of The Copper States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Caussi Caulicarrot Camillot with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.229 billion Copper Statesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venstradam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Copper Statesian economy, worth 137 trillion doleuros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,014 doleuros, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, there's no such thing as bad publicity, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities. Crime is totally unknown. The Copper States's national animal is the human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is We banned it.

The Copper States is ranked 2,858th in the world and 95th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 52 Valid Endorsements.
