The Commonwealth of Coreras is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Iain Banks with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.528 billion Corerasians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remuera. The average income tax rate is 88%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, organ donation is compulsory, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coreras's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Mark.

Coreras is ranked 538th in 10000 Islands and 66,519th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 73 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
