The Blue Islands of Corindia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marcel Paquet with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.897 billion Corindi are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carmo. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Corindi economy, worth a remarkable 2,981 trillion Corins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,551 Corins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future leaders of Corindia regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, edutainment video games are taking Corindia's students to the next level, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime is totally unknown. Corindia's national animal is the Marlin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Corindia is ranked 205,041st in the world and 141st in The Western Isles for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring zero on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
