The Allied States of Cornelliam is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Tim with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.893 billion Cornelliamians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timoteo. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, companies balk at paying their workers, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Cornelliam with a very polite populace. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornelliam's national animal is the Bonobo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Bon.

Cornelliam is ranked 7th in The Moon and 2,592nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 5 on the Hayek Index.
