The Most Serene Republic of Corguni is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Corgun with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.388 billion Corgunians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corgunian economy, worth a remarkable 4,017 trillion khoriums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 300,111 khoriums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,568,553 per year while the poor average 30,857, a ratio of 50.8 to 1.

A milk bath costs more than bathing in money, chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Corgunian restaurants, half of Corguni just lost MyFace after space debris collided with a major communications satellite, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Corguni's national animal is the polar bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Corguni is ranked 11,476th in the world and 582nd in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 24.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
