OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Corinova Island is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Warren Ulysses Builder with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.309 billion 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Commerce 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 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, billions of Civitass are being blown on orbital weapons development, and military spending is on the increase. 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 Civitas.

Corinova Island is ranked 88th in The New Commonwealth Society and 114,891st in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
