Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Coreras is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Iain Banks with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.74 billion Corerasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bristol. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corerasian economy, worth a remarkable 3,641 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,334 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Corerasians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, there's never enough space in space, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and pigeon fanciers are depressed since all their charges have gone off the twig... they've kicked the bucket... they've shuffled off their mortal coils run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible... they are EX-PIGEONS. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Coreras's national animal is the Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Coreras is ranked 150,430th in the world and 1,248th in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 1.26 Obesity Rate.
