The Empire of Korrodos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Rand en Karluth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.223 billion Korrodosians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kor. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Korrodosian economy, worth a remarkable 3,361 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 133,263 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Korrodos's national animal is the Korrodosian Tree Kayeman, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Korrisim.

Korrodos is ranked 68,970th in the world and 4th in Nova for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,576.94 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
