The Grand Principality of Corsithia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Crown Prince Nicholas Thane with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.977 billion Corsithians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville d'Ys. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Corsithian economy, worth 823 trillion crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,390 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, contestants on Corsithia's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, enemy agents often find themselves caught in a bind, and executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsithia's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Elevationism.

Corsithia is ranked 25,339th in the world and 1,267th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 24 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
