The Free Land of Corydo is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by TM with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 855 million Corydoians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Angels. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corydoan economy, worth 98.4 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,054 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, and TM's new android secretary is the latest media darling. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corydo's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Corydo is ranked 18,533rd in the world and 18th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 6,148.99 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
