The Republic of Corcaw is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, vat-grown people, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.035 billion Corcawians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corcaw City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Corcawian economy, worth a remarkable 3,196 trillion Tollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 199,349 Tollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The property market is in a bit of a state, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime is totally unknown. Corcaw's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Corcaw is ranked 240,770th in the world and 9,730th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -61.6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
