The Federation of Corrolian Space Bandits is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Snow with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.101 billion Corrolian Space Banditsians 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 Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Battlestation Gatlantica. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corrolian Space Banditsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,046 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Retail, Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 171,511 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Corrolian Space Bandits, escalators are avoided at all costs, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corrolian Space Bandits's national animal is the Vermicious Knids, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cosmos.

Corrolian Space Bandits is ranked 249,419th in the world and 49th in Hartfelden for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4.42 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
