The Glorious State of Kordesia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Mikael Zeman with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, lack of airports, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 5.176 billion Kordesians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carpova. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kordesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,988 trillion jubilees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 384,174 jubilees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and accusations of corruption stick when the accused are long-gone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kordesia's national animal is the Buteogallus anthracinus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Bolshevism.

Kordesia is ranked 3,048th in the world and 3rd in The Black Hawks for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,963.84 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
