The Tech Empire of Kortexia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by All Knowing Kortex with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.358 billion Kortexians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Defense and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kerebral Kortex. The average income tax rate is 9.5%.

The powerhouse Kortexian economy, worth a remarkable 1,919 trillion Codices a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 133,673 Codices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

A policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime is totally unknown. Kortexia's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Knowledge.

Kortexia is ranked 115,580th in the world and 596th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.91 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
