The Retired Puppet of Cormac Stark is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cormac Somerset with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.701 billion Cormonkeys enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cormacville. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

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. Cormac Stark's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the crucicrescent.

Cormac Stark is ranked 2,964th in the Rejected Realms and 115,130th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
