The Quaint Kolhkoz of Korouse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Chancellor Josef Grau with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.805 billion Korouseans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heiden. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korousean economy, worth a remarkable 1,934 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 151,042 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the World Quaint Kolhkoz Games have been won again by Korouse as no other country cares enough to compete, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korouse's national animal is the Black Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Korouse is ranked 81,588th in the world and 4th in Austritaria for Nudest, with 151.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
