The Three United States of Korolk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Nami Ito with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.968 billion Korolkians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chevaria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Korolkian economy, worth 303 trillion Korolkian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,267 Korolkian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 329,985 per year while the poor average 23,969, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

It is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', armoured pyjamas are in fashion amongst the nation's nobility, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korolk's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Korolk is ranked 117,970th in the world and 120th in First World Order for Most Average, scoring 35.56 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
