The Empire of Korrodos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Rand en Karluth with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.274 billion Korrodosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kor. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Korrodosian economy, worth a remarkable 3,276 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 134,968 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Korrodos's national animal is the Korrodosian Tree Kayeman, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Korrisim.

Korrodos is ranked 17,009th in the world and 4th in Nova for Highest Poor Incomes, with 80,130.52 Standard Monetary Units.
