The Cevlaian Corporate Colony of Cevlaian CORIS is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wang Li with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.422 billion Coreasians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CORIS City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Coreasian economy, worth 258 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 181,488 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 527,131 per year while the poor average 49,460, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Coreasian resumés, and Coreasian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime is a major problem. Cevlaian CORIS's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Super Capitalism.

Cevlaian CORIS is ranked 3,304th in the world and 5th in The United Federations for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 12,242.09 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
