The Colony of Corrian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kuadongu with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.756 billion Corrianians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cordeer. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Corrianian economy, worth 852 trillion Corras a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 45,475 Corras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corrian's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Corrian is ranked 76,477th in the world and 3rd in Carnival of Souls for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 75.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
