The Kingdom of Nova Corina is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 315 million Nova Corinans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corina. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The strong Nova Corinan economy, worth 25.8 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 82,058 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 292,199 per year while the poor average 16,585, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, and janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nova Corina's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nova Corina is ranked 108,006th in the world and 12th in The Story of Civilization for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.
