The Empire of Coredona is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Aramis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.748 billion Coredonans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphire city. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Coredonan economy, worth 130 trillion golden obsidian tokens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,474 golden obsidian tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coredona's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Coredona is ranked 212,424th in the world and 44th in Entropy for Fattest Citizens, with 7.15 Obesity Rate.
