The Federation of Kortik is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Greg Grant with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 15.198 billion Kortikians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gauja. The average income tax rate is 22.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kortikian economy, worth a remarkable 5,050 trillion ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 332,331 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Greg Grant to meetings with foreign heads of state, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kortik's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kortik is ranked 69,947th in the world and 2,983rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,190.53 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
