The VAST AIRE of Coverdnia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by THE GENIUS with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.459 billion KILLA BEES are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of THE SLUMS OF SHAOLIN. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Coverdnian economy, worth an astonishing 13,981 trillion ALMIGHTY DOLLARS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 683,393 ALMIGHTY DOLLARS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,924,457 per year while the poor average 102,376, a ratio of 28.6 to 1.

Vacationing KILLA BEES expect to be treated as royalty, the police motto is "to protect and not to serve", the monarch frequently needs protecting from misfiring protection, and trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coverdnia's national animal is the OL' DIRTY BASTARD, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is THE NATION OF GODS AND EARTHS.

Coverdnia is ranked 183,185th in the world and 7,224th in Osiris for Most Average, scoring 20.37 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
