The Republic of Corinthina is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Maria Lopez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.547 billion Corinthinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Luxembourg. The average income tax rate is 61%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Corinthina's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. Corinthina's national animal is the Brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the Bullion.
