The State of Democratic Koyro is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Paramount Leader Ohanka Jon Bak-su with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, avowedly heterosexual populace, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.421 billion Koys are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ansyu. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.
The Democratic Koyroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion Tokens 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 a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 129,527 Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the average cargo freighter spends more than half its service life undergoing safety inspections, the media have began calling the government treasury "Paramount Leader Ohanka Jon Bak-su's stash", and the last thing Democratic Koyroan soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic Koyro's national animal is the Grass Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Serpent Cult.
