The Communist Democracy of Corumon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Aaphin with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.608 billion Corumonans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Summerstone. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Corumonan economy, worth 282 trillion Corucrons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 37,086 Corucrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, books are so highly regarded in Corumon that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corumon's national animal is the dodo bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Gateism.

Corumon is ranked 146,684th in the world and 10th in Nesapo for Most Stationary, with 15.7334621528 Days.
