The Kingdom of Korkee is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Beria Candan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.728 billion Korkeeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apiygas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.2%.

The strong Korkeean economy, worth 138 trillion Coals a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 50,781 Coals, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

The disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, chocolate in Korkee has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, and it's best not to ask what goes into Apiygas Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices. Crime is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korkee's national animal is the Fairy and its national religion is Saranism.

Korkee is ranked 87,887th in the world and 78th in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 137,620 Standard Monetary Units.
