The People's Republic of Korramai is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.584 billion Korramaians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Korramaian economy, worth 114 trillion berubais 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, 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 25,007 berubais, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korramai's national animal is the Great Blue Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korramai is ranked 48,154th in the world and 1,232nd in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -7.07 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
