The Kingdom of Korsbar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Drottning Marie IV af Loyola with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.457 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 84.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Korsbarian economy, worth 202 trillion Ericssons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 139,097 Ericssons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the election for Drottning Marie IV af Loyola's office's janitor is heating up, bars are packed at all hours, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Korsbar. 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 6,336th in the world and 278th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 99.44 Quips Per Hour.
