The Matriarchy of Korotania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Big Sister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.197 billion Korotanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Best City. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The Korotanian economy, worth 619 trillion zins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,571 zins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Devotion to God is only skin-deep, posters on 'Korotanian Values' advise against being proud of Korotania, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korotania's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korotania is ranked 131,364th in the world and 6th in The Flying Spaghetti Monster Lands for Largest Black Market, with 128 billion Standard Monetary Units.
