OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 24.949 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.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, school uniforms are compulsory, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Corsaria. 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 121,199th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -29 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
