The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 34.395 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 14,841 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 431,494 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, the justice of Corsaria is considered superior to that of other nations, and police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold-plated handcuffs. 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 166,967th in the world and 3rd in Katasia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -20.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
