The Republic of Corum55 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Yatib Al-Akil with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.042 billion Corum55ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taylor. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Corum55ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,241 trillion rubles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,133 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corum55's national animal is the crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox.
