The Federation of Corisar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President George Halest with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.38 billion Corisarians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gosai. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Corisarian economy, worth 396 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,759 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corisar's national animal is the Belisai, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Corisar is ranked 275,818th in the world and 10,151st in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -11.4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
