The Republic of Courelli is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor Joshua B Thomas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.386 billion Courellians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Courellian economy, worth 893 trillion Courellian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 165,822 Courellian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake. 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 143,252nd in the world and 67th in Social Liberal Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring -69.22 on the Rand Index.
