The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.001 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, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The large but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 137 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 9,809 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and blind dates tend to result in bruised shins. 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 4th in the world and 2nd in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 1,555.55 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
