|Leader||Governor Joshua B Thomas|
The Republic of Courelli is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Governor Joshua B Thomas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.366 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 enormous, liberal, 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 98.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Courellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,504 trillion Golden 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 and Retail. Average income is an impressive 179,814 Golden Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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.
