The Unsurprisingly Unretired of Cormac Stark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cormac Stark with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.058 billion Cormonkeys enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cormacville. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Cormonkey economy, worth 401 trillion crucicrescents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 66,243 crucicrescents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, a government program is underway to revitalize Cormac Stark's beaches, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cormac Stark's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
