The Republic of Kornic is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Marx with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.639 billion Kornicians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delphi. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kornician economy, worth 877 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,892 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police double as repo men, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, and the might of the nation's military are undertaking a long march to colonisation in Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kornic's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kornic is ranked 100,006th in the world and 268th in Birb for Most Pacifist, with 57.02 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
