Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Corinova Island is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President George Wyncroft with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 7.281 billion Corinovans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Vineyard. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corinovan economy, worth 720 trillion Civitas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,009 Civitas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Corinova Island's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Corinova Island's radio stations. Crime is well under control. Corinova Island's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Onivian.

Corinova Island is ranked 7th in The Commonwealth Society and 40,769th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
