The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical population of 24.227 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, 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.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. 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 4th in Katasia and 37,701st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.613 Stalins.
