The Lucky Holy Red Defenders of The New Cordian Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Randolf Kersson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.125 billion Cordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The New Cordian Empire City. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cordian economy, worth 209 trillion cordans a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,388 cordans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and diplomatic cables about Randolf Kersson have suddenly been very flattering. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Cordian Empire's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The New Cordian Empire is ranked 93,908th in the world and 3rd in The Ancient Realm for Most Conservative, scoring 56.15 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
