The United Conglomerates of Corporoat is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Coffee Machine with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.856 billion Consumers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bargainburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corporoatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,303 trillion adverts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 420,523 adverts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,888,403 per year while the poor average 21,897, a ratio of 131 to 1.

Street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Corporoat's national animal is the fur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Corporoat is ranked 10th in the world and 1st in TopCornion for Rudest Citizens, with 1,855.41 Insults Per Minute.
