The Corrupted Corruption of Corruptionz is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Corrupted Psycho with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.331 billion Corrupteds live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Corrupt Ones. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corruptionzian economy, worth a remarkable 1,522 trillion krabbybucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 285,549 krabbybucks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,561,573 per year while the poor average 26,676, a ratio of 58.5 to 1.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corruptionz's national animal is the cerberus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Corruptionizm.

Corruptionz is ranked 1,717th in the world and 93rd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 760.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
