The United Conglomerates of Corporoat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Coffee Machine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.674 billion Consumers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Administration is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bargainburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corporoatian economy, worth a remarkable 5,093 trillion adverts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 477,217 adverts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,093,593 per year while the poor average 29,440, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Populations of two-headed furs have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, and being Coffee Machine has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corporoat's national animal is the fur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Corporoat is ranked 5,804th in the world and 3rd in TopCornion for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,035.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
