Glen Cooley

Population732 million



The Commonwealth of Glen Cooley is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 732 million Glen Cooleyians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of C˙ailnge. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Glen Cooleyian economy, worth 50.5 trillion Sterlings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,987 Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Auditors are gutting every governmental department, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, C˙ailnge has become the number one destination for urban exploration in the South Pacific, and constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glen Cooley's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glen Cooley is ranked 37,792nd in the world and 1,234th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 47,669.53 Standard Monetary Units.
