The Northern Light of Kors is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.152 billion Korsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Pole. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korsian economy, worth 420 trillion Candy Canes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,193 Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Kors. Crime is totally unknown. Kors's national animal is the spirit grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eternal Progress.

Kors is ranked 4,734th in the world and 99th in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 129.82 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
