The Lifeless Being of Arquipelago da Coruja is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Camarada Manquinho with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.242 billion Corujenses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Évora. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Corujense economy, worth 98.9 trillion escudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 18,862 escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, and they who do not work shall not eat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arquipelago da Coruja's national animal is the coruja, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Direitos de Autor.

Arquipelago da Coruja is ranked 245,754th in the world and 174th in Portugal for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -9.7 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
