OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Corinova Island is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President George Wyncroft with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.706 billion Corinovans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Commerce and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Vineyard. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.

Government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, the nation leads The New Commonwealth Society in per capita stalking, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 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 95th in The New Commonwealth Society and 110,449th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
