The Kingdom of Isla Coronada is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 676 million coronados are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mérida. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.

The frighteningly efficient coronado economy, worth 65.7 trillion Coroas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,160 Coroas, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government snoops on private internet connections, opening a bad email attachment can be a major felony, the only position a woman can hold is baby-maker, and skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Isla Coronada's national animal is the bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Isla Coronada is ranked 39,513th in the world and 14th in Novo Brasil for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,949.51 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
