The Republic of Courelli is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Governor Paolo Argentieri with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.295 billion Courellians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leoncavallo. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Courellian economy, worth a remarkable 2,623 trillion Callas 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, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 197,327 Callas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, more and more people are signing up for the government party, and the nation leads The Social Liberal Union in per capita stalking. 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 307,231st in the world and 186th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Primitive, scoring -575.42 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
