The Celtic Empire of A Cornstar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by IACOBVS REX with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.621 billion Cornoes are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized 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 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corny economy, worth a remarkable 1,506 trillion Good Boy Points a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,831 Good Boy Points, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, it's believed that women's brains will overheat if they think for themselves, and visitors to Self-Sufficiency National Park who ask for trail maps are handed a pen and a blank sheet of paper. 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 53,828th in the world and 2nd in Westfalen Westphalia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 232,751 Standard Monetary Units.
