The Commonwealth of Coreras is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Iain Banks with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.961 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remuera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime -- especially youth-related -- 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 979th in 10000 Islands and 116,507th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -16 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
