The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 36.382 billion Corsarians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corsaria City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Corsarian economy, worth an astonishing 16,545 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 454,771 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Corsaria, the question of 'what is Empress Mataii's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Empress Mataii Pics" has made Empress Mataii's mom a celebrity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsaria's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Corsaria is ranked 177,322nd in the world and 3rd in Katasia for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 11.03 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
