Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Corfad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.97 billion Corfadians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corfad City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corfadian economy, worth a remarkable 5,689 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 518,615 Euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,967,601 per year while the poor average 94,893, a ratio of 20.7 to 1.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, and gun ownership is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Corfad's national animal is the hell hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Corfad is ranked 175th in the world and 5th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 77,636.92 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
