The Kingdom of Korwinostan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 689 million Korwinostanians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mikke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The thriving Korwinostanian economy, worth 68.3 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 99,183 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 540,338 per year while the poor average 9,342, a ratio of 57.8 to 1.

There's more than one way to skin a diplomat, it's always rabbit season, sly spies try to rely on national allies so that they don't die, and they say the best compromise leaves everyone feeling a little unarmed. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Korwinostan's national animal is the Tuber, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Korwinostan is ranked 19,498th in the world and 1st in Istok for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 57.84 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
