OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 24.733 billion Corsarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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 1st in Katasia and 114th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 606 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
