The United Conglomerates of Corporoat is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Coffee Machine with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.435 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, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. 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 3,042 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 409,265 adverts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,173,002 per year while the poor average 40,722, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, cities are engulfed by smog, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Corporoat is ranked 17,417th in the world and 7th in TopCornion for Largest Black Market, with 30.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
