The Republic of Korvias is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.612 billion Korviasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Porkvas. The average income tax rate is 73.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Korviasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,203 trillion Lobis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 214,405 Lobis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The official Korviasian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Korvias Blood Tithe. Crime is totally unknown. Korvias's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Korvias is ranked 14,383rd in the world and 99th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 87.55 on the Human Development Index.
