The Corporate Dictatorship of Corruptius is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Munn E Maykurr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.255 billion Corruptiusians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moneybaggsville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Corruptiusian economy, worth 793 trillion Richleeses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 186,522 Richleeses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 969,818 per year while the poor average 19,384, a ratio of 50.0 to 1.

Corruptius is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, Corruptiusian Gladiators is a ratings success, and celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corruptius's national animal is the Greedee-Durtbagg, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money Worship.

Corruptius is ranked 133,725th in the world and 5,642nd in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
