The Matriarchy of Korotania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Big Sister with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.957 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 94.7%.

The strong Korotanian economy, worth 687 trillion zins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,789 zins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little 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 8,262nd in the world and 1st in The Flying Spaghetti Monster Lands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,762.24 Tourists Per Hour.
