The Corrupted Corruption of Corruptionz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Corrupted Psycho with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.969 billion Corrupteds live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Corrupt Ones. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corruptionzian economy, worth a remarkable 1,345 trillion krabbybucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 270,823 krabbybucks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,461,137 per year while the poor average 26,049, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

Official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis, the diplomatic corps stinks, cities are engulfed by smog, and it is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corruptionz's national animal is the cerberus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Corruptionizm.

Corruptionz is ranked 38,880th in the world and 1,963rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 61.35 on the Human Development Index.
