Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Korsbar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Drottning Eleonora IV af Vimle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.8 billion Korsbarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reenberg. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korsbarian economy, worth 252 trillion Ericssons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,306 Ericssons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Korsbar Blood Tithe, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korsbar's national animal is the Falk's Marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korsbar is ranked 83,691st in the world and 4,539th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,288.74 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
