LeaderKing William III


The Koningsrijk of Korolk is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King William III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.391 billion Korolkians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Korolkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,681 trillion guilders 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. 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 amazing 200,350 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, Korolk successfully hosted the Institute of Cellulose Olympics, the new prison system is crowding up at an alarming rate, and schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Korolk's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Korolk is ranked 121,560th in the world and 82nd in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,829.05 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
