The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 37.236 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. 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 17,271 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 463,849 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, government employees from Corsaria dominate international lumberjack competitions, there's a hole in the heart of every Corsarian city, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 396th in the world and 1st in Katasia for Highest Average Incomes, with 463,849.99 Standard Monetary Units.
