The Babelic Meritocracy of Ko-oren is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Akiranar Nembus with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 9.117 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ko-oren City. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The large but underdeveloped Ko-orenian economy, worth 611 trillion Koronas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,052 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and Ko-oren has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. 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, and its national religion is Ko-orenite Animism.

Ko-oren is ranked 94th in Atlantian Oceania and 114,442nd in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
