The Kingdom of Korwinostan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 659 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 4.5%.

The thriving Korwinostanian economy, worth 65.8 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 99,880 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 537,139 per year while the poor average 9,673, a ratio of 55.5 to 1.

Korwinostan has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in New Mikke. 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 13,115th in the world and 1st in Istok for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,482.23 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
