The Republic of Cornered is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 4.213 billion Corneredians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Corneredian economy, worth 135 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,209 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, and employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornered's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cornered is ranked 142,136th in the world and 6th in International Socialism for Most Developed, scoring 52.96 on the Human Development Index.
