The Babelic Meritocracy of Ko-oren is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Akiranar Nembus with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.009 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ko-oren City. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Cars are banned from built-up areas, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ko-orenite Animism, and its currency is the Korona.

Ko-oren is ranked 3rd in Atlantian Oceania and 1,997th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 101 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
