The Christmas Seesaw Republic of Korktopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Korkk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.476 billion Korks enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rope City. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korkian economy, worth 156 trillion kroks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,262 kroks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korktopia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korktopia is ranked 18,924th in the world and 589th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 12.3 Bank.
