The Socialist Industrial Nation of Kordesia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Comrade Cheng with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.348 billion workers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow Administration Centre. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kordesian economy, worth 986 trillion loaves of bread 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Trout Farming. 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 an amazing 294,647 loaves of bread, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, Big Scary Bear is one of the most popular forenames in Kordesia, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kordesia's national animal is the big scary bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marxism.

Kordesia is ranked 54,854th in the world and 130th in The Black Hawks for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,501.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
