The Jingoistic States of Cortapatia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 581 million Cortapatians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 23.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cortapatian economy, worth 47.0 trillion Ecus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 80,931 Ecus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, school uniforms are compulsory, C-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and Cortapatia has designated Cortapatia City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cortapatia's national animal is the Potato, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cortapatia is ranked 129,331st in the world and 90th in Ascenthia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
