Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Cornered is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 3.544 billion Corneredians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Corneredian economy, worth 109 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,015 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornered's national animal is the beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cornered is ranked 73,882nd in the world and 3rd in Geopolitics for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 975.51 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
