The People's Republic of Corolines is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maria Komisarrov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.714 billion Corolonieces are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Capital. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corolinesian economy, worth 598 trillion Cores a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 161,030 Cores, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proletariat workers identify less with the hammer and sickle and more with the touchscreen and phone charger, the government prevents violence by committing genocide, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corolines's national animal is the Moofus and its national religion is Atheism.

Corolines is ranked 19,972nd in the world and 1,126th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 81.77 on the Human Development Index.
