The Fancy Men of Kornwood is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Zoidberg with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.976 billion Kornwoodians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoidbergia . The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

The government has enacted freedom of information, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kornwood's national animal is the count dracula, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the apples.

Kornwood is ranked 3,343rd in Balder and 118,745th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -309 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
