The Golden Guard of Korgonsk is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 742 million Korgonskians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiyonokyo. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Korgonskian economy, worth 53.5 trillion Korgs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 72,117 Korgs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy, and parents are fined for sending their children to take out the trash after sunset. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korgonsk's national animal is the Corgi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Korgonsk is ranked 19,550th in the world and 4th in the Union of Wreath and Rose for Most Patriotic, with 34.87 flags saluted per person per day.
