The Kingdom of Korsbar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Drottning Anne IV of Verity with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The democratic, humorless population of 2.687 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 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korsbarian economy, worth 374 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 139,487 Ericssons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service. 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 5,488th in the world and 267th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 486.46 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
