The Anthrostate of Korwin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Almeida with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.19 billion Korwinians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashkiln. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Korwinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,902 trillion liens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 232,262 liens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, Korwinian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korwin's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korwin is ranked 272,721st in the world and 873rd in NationStates for Most Avoided, scoring 0.35 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
