The Fascist Empire of Corolines is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vladimir Trotsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.609 billion Corolonieces 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Corolinesian economy, worth 214 trillion Cores a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,255 Cores, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, it's entirely possible foreign diplomats misheard when Corolines offered the words "peace be upon you", airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corolines's national animal is the Corolonies Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Corolines is ranked 90,739th in the world and 4,170th in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 737.99 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
