The COG State of Korolk is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Director Winogradsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.766 billion Korolkians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chevaria. The average income tax rate is 80.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Korolkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,344 trillion UCDS a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 173,113 UCDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korolk's national animal is the Dlaaurc Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Korolk is ranked 15,608th in the world and 33rd in Institute of Cellulose for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 360,789 Standard Monetary Units.
