Old Corus

Population545 million



The People's Republic of Old Corus is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 545 million Midwesterners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Midwestern economy, worth 42.5 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 77,997 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Old Corus retire only a few years after being appointed, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Corus's national animal is the Hydra.

Old Corus is ranked 52,160th in the world and 45th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,131.86 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
