The Socialist Republic of Cortesie is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Li Huaxiang with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.528 billion cortesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yambian. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient cortesiean economy, worth 329 trillion Jifngs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 130,395 Jifngs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, translators are keen to explain feline MPs' claw and ordure policies, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, and brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cortesie's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pinyin Shen.

Cortesie is ranked 232,871st in the world and 10th in Central Council of Nations for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -6.95 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
