The Commonwealth of Coreras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Iain Banks with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.337 billion Corerasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remuera. The average income tax rate is 20.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Corerasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,050 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,401 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Protests are legal but strictly supervised, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Marks of property damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Coreras's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
