The Republic of Courelli is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Governor Joshua B Thomas with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.414 billion Courellians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leoncavallo. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Courellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,290 trillion Courellian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 173,996 Courellian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, public parks are littered with cigarette butts, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown. Courelli's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dalinism.

Courelli is ranked 2,963rd in the world and 6th in Social Liberal Union for Highest Poor Incomes, with 161,011.42 Standard Monetary Units.
