The Confederacy of Controlling Corporations is a massive, devout nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.488 billion Controlling Corporationsians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Central Hub. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

Loans are available for students from poor families, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Controlling Corporations's national animal is the Killer Bee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and its currency is the Corporate Credit.

Controlling Corporations is ranked 1,097th in Lazarus and 49,823rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -5 on the Hayek Index.
