The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 41.811 billion Corsarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corsaria City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Corsarian economy, worth an astonishing 17,335 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 414,615 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Empress Mataii performing the Full-Monty are selling out, the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsaria's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Corsaria is ranked 629th in the world and 1st in Katasia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 19,609 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
