The Republic of Korvias is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.242 billion Korviasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Porkvas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Korviasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion Lobis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 198,463 Lobis, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone with a tin cup can stop by the welfare office to have it filled with coins, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the nation's nuclear defence policy is to "turn the other cheek", and politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Lobis. Crime is totally unknown. Korvias's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Korvias is ranked 2,581st in the world and 2nd in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 23,154.78 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
