The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 37.354 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government 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 enormous but sluggish Corsarian economy, worth a remarkable 5,954 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 impressive 159,412 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Tiger sacrifices, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 189,877th in the world and 3rd in Katasia for Most Politically Free, scoring 8.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
