The Commonwealth of Corpland is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 401 million Corplandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Platinum city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Corplandian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Corporate dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 129,737 Corporate dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 821,916 per year while the poor average 8,520, a ratio of 96.5 to 1.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, chemically brainwashed citizens praise Leader's name on an hourly basis, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corpland's national animal is the Mark from accounting, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Corpland is ranked 136,193rd in the world and 6,098th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 174.56 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
