The Republic of Korva is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Siran Roux with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.41 billion Korvans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantine. The average income tax rate is 64.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Korvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,138 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,165 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, prison visits increase substantially during election years, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korva's national animal is the Red Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Korva is ranked 174,932nd in the world and 2nd in Realism and RP for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -5 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
