The State of Democratic Koyro is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Paramount Leader Ohanka Jon Bak-su with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.344 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 98.3%.
The large but sluggish Democratic Koyroan economy, worth 604 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 64,717 Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Democratic Koyro, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', and army rations are served on silver platters. 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.
