The Most Ancient States of Korinekia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 25.345 billion Korinekians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ligeropolis. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, the government is sending thousands of citizens overseas to defend a square mile of land, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korinekia's national animal is the liger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the shiny bit of metal.

Korinekia is ranked 2,722nd in Osiris and 103,044th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
