The Federal Republic of Corthaen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Orson Devault with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.83 billion Corthaenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adorna. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corthaenian economy, worth 573 trillion Leonis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,679 Leonis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, surveillance cameras are banned, '.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Corthaenian websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corthaen's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freedom of Religion.

Corthaen is ranked 67,916th in the world and 306th in Europe for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53 on the Rand Index.
