The Anthrostate of Korwin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Consul Almeida with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.172 billion Korwinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashkiln. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Korwinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,894 trillion liens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 231,867 liens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, Ashkiln is a police state during international summits, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korwin's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korwin is ranked 1,522nd in the world and 9th in NationStates for Smartest Citizens, with 201.94 quips per hour.
