The Federal Republic of CORE Directorate is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Director with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 1.429 billion Bio-trophies 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexus. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CORE Directoratean economy, worth 220 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 153,969 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of CORE Directoratean Embarrassments, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CORE Directorate's national animal is the Danger Noodle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

CORE Directorate is ranked 7,559th in the world and 1st in Datanet for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,791.59 Tourists Per Hour.
