The Discount Zazumo of Korolk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Michael Nivokol with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.22 billion Korolkians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kortololkiantopole. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Korolkian economy, worth 173 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,206 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, retail staff are trained to take both inside leg measurements and the lives of their enemies, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Kortololkiantopole" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korolk's national animal is the Bushstalker, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Krolki.

Korolk is ranked 25,195th in the world and 1,107th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,535.75 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
