The Kingdom of Korwinostan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 675 million Korwinostanians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mikke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The thriving Korwinostanian economy, worth 66.8 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 99,023 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 538,590 per year while the poor average 9,360, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, torture is illegal, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and government forces are said to be deterred by signs reading "No Spam, Cold Callers or Central Government - Thank You". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Korwinostan's national animal is the Tuber, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Korwinostan is ranked 133,391st in the world and 3rd in Istok for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 700.75 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
