The Commonwealth of Coreras is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Iain M Banks with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.864 billion Corerasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bristol. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corerasian economy, worth a remarkable 3,827 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 226,965 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Coreras's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Coreras is ranked 18,330th in the world and 135th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 4,640.07 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
