The Holy Blue Allied States of Cornlind is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kingbob with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 6.613 billion Cornlindians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cowzebracity. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cornlindian economy, worth 673 trillion chicken nuggets a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,881 chicken nuggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, soldiers are issued comics about superheroes punching unflattering caricatures of their enemies, and vehicle strikes into low bridges are on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornlind's national animal is the cow zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Garlic Bread.

Cornlind is ranked 47,179th in the world and 48th in The Black Hawks for Largest Populations, with 6.61 billion Capita.
