The Republic of Caurus is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.778 billion Corusmen enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zenith. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Corusan economy, worth 946 trillion Corus Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,820 Corus Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, war vets look after war animals, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caurus's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Caurus is ranked 163,427th in the world and 2nd in Federal Colonial Alliance for Most Avoided, scoring 0.56 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
