The Free Land of Corydo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by TM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.375 billion Corydoians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Corydoan economy, worth 342 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,096 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, bris parties are all the rage, most barbers are also surgeons, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corydo's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dakota.

Corydo is ranked 7,545th in the world and 13th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Developed, scoring 91.88 on the Human Development Index.
