Cornwallis Bay

Population1.052 billion

CapitalCapital District
LeaderPrince Benjamin I


The Principality of Cornwallis Bay is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Benjamin I with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.052 billion Cornwallisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital District. The average income tax rate is 84.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cornwallis Bayian economy, worth 116 trillion shillings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,521 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Cornwallis Bay is often a lifetime appointment, Cornwallisians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornwallis Bay's national animal is the duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnoticism.

Cornwallis Bay is ranked 15,869th in the world and 806th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 28.67 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
