The Holy Necromantic Empire of Korprike is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Valeri Manthaarys I with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.378 billion Korps enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necromantaeion. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corvinian economy, worth a remarkable 6,090 trillion crowns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 396,069 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, sheep-like political loyalists repeat the mantra "one wheel bad, three wheels good", life is short but human kindness is endless, and Emperor Valeri Manthaarys I has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances. Crime is totally unknown. Korprike's national animal is the ghost raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Necromancy.

Korprike is ranked 20,224th in the world and 1,279th in Balder for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,486.86 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
