The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 24.567 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 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.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. 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 5th in Katasia and 114,543rd in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -32 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
