The Commonwealth of Coreras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Iain Banks with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.265 billion Corerasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, 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 49.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Corerasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,378 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,161 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Coreras's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, Iain Banks's mistress is the belle at many state balls, the Coreras Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Coreras's national animal is the Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
