The Republic of Corcaw is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.676 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 2,712 trillion Tollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 184,792 Tollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, Leader lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. 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 220,679th in the world and 9,983rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1588.99 on the Hayek Index.
