The Matriarchy of Korotania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Big Sister with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.837 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, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baltimore. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Korotanian economy, worth 488 trillion zins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,409 zins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nano-sloths are the current fad sweeping the nation, devotion to God is only skin-deep, posters on 'Korotanian Values' advise against being proud of Korotania, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". 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 170,696th in the world and 12th in The Flying Spaghetti Monster Lands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
