The United Federal Republic of Courletnia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by WS Antoniette with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.299 billion Courletnians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necrington Urbs. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Courletnian economy, worth 103 trillion Units 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, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 79,478 Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a law unto itself, elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and WS Antoniette has just been declared ruler of Courletnia in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Courletnia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Courletnia is ranked 81,315th in the world and 2,977th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,755.39 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
