The Corporate Consortium of Courathar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Zeller-Voss Board of Directors with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.445 billion Couratharians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Administration and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Couratharian economy, worth 704 trillion bytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 204,570 bytes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,573,079 per year while the poor average 7,124, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, economists claim no news is good news, and the government is a law unto itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Courathar's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mercerism.

Courathar is ranked 66,651st in the world and 86th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Stationary, with 429.0801420552 days.
