The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.088 billion Copercians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The large but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 101 trillion Coperciums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 8,406 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and government officials say that if you close your eyes and wish really hard the budget deficit will go away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Copercia's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a major religion.

Copercia is ranked 11,701st in the world and 117th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 96 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
