The Celtic Empire of A Cornstar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by IACOBVS REX with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.919 billion Cornoes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cornstarntinople. The average income tax rate is 25.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cornic economy, worth 680 trillion Good Boy Points a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,339 Good Boy Points, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, IACOBVS REX will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges, and tourists call Cornic beach towns "the fine coastline". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Cornstar's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Chalcedonian Christianity.

A Cornstar is ranked 18,535th in the world and 9th in Westfalen Westphalia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 255.28 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
