The Kingdom of Korsbar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Drottning Anne IV of Verity with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, humorless population of 3.09 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 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korsbarian economy, worth 434 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 140,763 Ericssons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Korsbar flights to avoid the pay lavatories, drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning. 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 95,225th in the world and 5,298th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,284.46 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
