The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 37.194 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. 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 17,240 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 463,535 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 208,190th in the world and 3rd in Katasia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 1.19 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
