The Seesaw Republic of Korktopia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 583 million Korks enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rope City. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Korkian economy, worth 36.6 trillion kroks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,853 kroks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Korktopia's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, parking's carefree without parking car fees, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korktopia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korktopia is ranked 197,981st in the world and 7,916th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.65 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
