The Fluffy Flamingos of Korinna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Argyle McCattington III with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.503 billion Korinnans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Severne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.3%.

The powerhouse Korinnan economy, worth 694 trillion coins a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 66,083 coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korinna's national animal is the Flamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Korinna is ranked 97,928th in the world and 23rd in Taijitu for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 36.53 on the Hayek Index.
