Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 30.238 billion Corsarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 12,102 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an amazing 400,255 Cors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. 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 174,809th in the world and 3rd in Katasia for Highest Drug Use, scoring 8.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
