The People's Kingdom of Corsoaua is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Park Su-Hwa with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.224 billion Corsens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Taesong. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Corsen economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 trillion Teetans a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 362,921 Teetans, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,274,067 per year while the poor average 4,909, a ratio of 666 to 1.

Polite commuters on the Greater Taesong Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise, and Corsoaua's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corsoaua's national animal is the Shikra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Seowon.

Corsoaua is ranked 43,264th in the world and 121st in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 68.08 on the Human Development Index.
