The Republic of Copal is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.73 billion Copalians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samtopia. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Copalian economy, worth 563 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 72,861 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Federal Council of Copal has been announced as the new Head of State, refugees from other nations are flocking to Copal's border, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and citizens have voted the song "Leader Smells Like A Duck" as their new national anthem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Copal's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Copal is ranked 169,000th in the world and 4th in Sapril for Most Pro-Market, scoring -63.33 on the Rand Index.
