The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, cynical population of 23.652 billion 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, socially-minded 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.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, protests are legal but strictly supervised, the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. 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 39,372nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
