The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 40.027 billion Corsarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corsaria City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Corsarian economy, worth an astonishing 15,968 trillion Cors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 398,946 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, and blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsaria's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Corsaria is ranked 703rd in the world and 1st in Katasia for Most Inclusive, scoring 467.17 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
