OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Corinova Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President George Wyncroft with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 6.85 billion Corinovans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Vineyard. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and students cut up leftover Civitas during Arts and Crafts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Corinova Island's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Civita.

Corinova Island is ranked 71st in The New Commonwealth Society and 107,988th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
