The Allied States of Cornelliam is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Tim with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.343 billion Cornelliamians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, airport security is provided by private companies, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 88th in The Moon and 110,260th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -291 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
