The Kingdom of Korolk is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Yamato with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.461 billion Korolkians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chevaria. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korolkian economy, worth 425 trillion Korolkian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,964 Korolkian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, and it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korolk's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Korolk is ranked 7,181st in the world and 291st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 168 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
