The Commonwealth of Coreras is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Iain Banks with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 9.22 billion Corerasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Coreras's many privately-owned prisons, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. 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 132nd in 10000 Islands and 5,149th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 54 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
