The Kingdom of Korwinostan is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 682 million Korwinostanians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mikke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The thriving Korwinostanian economy, worth 67.7 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 99,222 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 539,671 per year while the poor average 9,379, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Trade deals are born to the sound of a royal woman's anguished screams, opening a bad email attachment can be a major felony, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and the military has gone fission for more funding. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Korwinostan's national animal is the Tuber, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Korwinostan is ranked 2,889th in the world and 1st in Istok for Fattest Citizens, with 33.59 Obesity Rate.
