The Republic of Corcaw is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.445 billion Corcawians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corcaw City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Corcawian economy, worth a remarkable 2,863 trillion Tollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 198,211 Tollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All the world's a stage for Corcawian political theatrics, too many hyper-intelligent chefs can spoil the allegorical broth, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans. Crime is totally unknown. Corcaw's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Corcaw is ranked 202,636th in the world and 8,887th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.56 Crimes Per Hour.
