The Pseudo-Fascist Bureaucracy of Corcetia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by High Chancellor Zenith with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.001 billion Bureaucrats 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, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruhr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Fascist economy, worth a remarkable 2,095 trillion Corcetian Standardized Banknotes a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 209,499 Corcetian Standardized Banknotes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,023,032 per year while the poor average 24,667, a ratio of 41.5 to 1.

An extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Corcetia flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Corcetia's national animal is the White Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Corcetia is ranked 6,722nd in the world and 6th in New Hyperion for Highest Economic Output, with 2,095 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
