The Empire of Korrodos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Rand en Karluth with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.361 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, with Education and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.7%.

The powerhouse Korrodosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,966 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 138,859 Imperial Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Purple armbands are being issued to Violetists for ease of identification, the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, and for 25 Imperial Marks tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. 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 164,590th in the world and 5th in Nova for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 34.54 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
