The Kingdom of Korwinostan is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 669 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 receive no funds. 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 66.2 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 98,933 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 538,100 per year while the poor average 9,351, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount New Mikke make great practice for foreign snipers, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. 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 224,617th in the world and 3rd in Istok for Most Developed, scoring 46.32 on the Human Development Index.
