The Demarchic Horde of Korolk is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaeso Gavreau Vitruvius Casca with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.219 billion Eruseans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malpais. The average income tax rate is 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Korolkian economy, worth 575 trillion Eruses a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 136,517 Eruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

People often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. 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 Mastiff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Korolk is ranked 236,153rd in the world and 63rd in First World Order for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 12.88 Tourists Per Hour.
