The Republic of Corcaw is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.289 billion Corcawians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 Administration, Education, 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 3,999 trillion Tollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,675 Tollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and all you have to do is pray to get into Corcaw. 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 254,009th in the world and 13,187th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.21 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
