The Imperial Power of Corsoaua is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Hiromaki with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.094 billion Corsens are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Tokyhai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Corsen economy, worth a remarkable 1,099 trillion Teetans a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 355,450 Teetans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,647,551 per year while the poor average 46,175, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corsoaua's national animal is the Royal Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Reason.

Corsoaua is ranked 3,604th in the world and 16th in New Western Empire for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,001.69 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
