The Empire of Corsaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Mataii with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 37.398 billion Corsarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corsaria City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Corsarian economy, worth a remarkable 5,972 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 159,689 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, farting etiquette is taught in schools, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsaria's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Corsaria is ranked 205,222nd in the world and 4th in Katasia for Most Primitive, scoring -782.37 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
