The Constitutional Monarchy of Corvideia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 750 million Corvids enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raven Rock. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Corvus economy, worth 21.7 trillion Picas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,978 Picas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and Corvideia has designated Raven Rock as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corvideia's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Corvideia is ranked 46,510th in the world and 1,610th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 617.51 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
