The Industrial Heaven of Corona Archipelago is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Joseph DePinto with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.073 billion Coronans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auptonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Corona Archipelagoan economy, worth 105 trillion shashumgs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 98,106 shashumgs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 425,844 per year while the poor average 14,337, a ratio of 29.7 to 1.

Atheists and evolutionary biologists are fleeing the country like rats from a sinking ship, Corona Archipelago Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, and a major religion has been named as Corona Archipelago's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corona Archipelago's national animal is the Pelican, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Corona Archipelago is ranked 121,370th in the world and 5th in Saide System for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 78.35 on the Hayek Index.
