The Confederacy of Coolerest is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 189 million Coolerestians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The very strong Coolerestian economy, worth 15.1 trillion denars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 79,923 denars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 325,369 per year while the poor average 13,033, a ratio of 25.0 to 1.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Coolerest's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Coolerest is ranked 164,276th in the world and 6th in Rattlesnake Allodial Federation for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
