The People's Republic of Old Corus is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.576 billion Midwesterners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Midwestern economy, worth 125 trillion dollars 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,817 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Corus's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
