The Republic of Cornered is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.275 billion Corneredians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Corneredian economy, worth 80.5 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,589 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is designated as a welfare recipient under Skandilundian law, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornered's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cornered is ranked 107,030th in the world and 1,745th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 690.84 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
