The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 24.421 billion Corsarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corsaria City. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsaria's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Cor.

Corsaria is ranked 6th in Katasia and 112,019th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -34 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
