The Republic of Corcaw is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.686 billion Corcawians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corcaw City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Corcawian economy, worth a remarkable 2,508 trillion Tollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 183,260 Tollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Corcaw's hospitals, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown. Corcaw's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Corcaw is ranked 542nd in the world and 20th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 128 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
