The Babelic Meritocracy of Ko-oren is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Akiranar Nembus with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.875 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ko-oren City. The average income tax rate is 98%. 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.

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, its national religion is Ko-orenite Animism, and its currency is the Korona.

Ko-oren is ranked 117th in Atlantian Oceania and 43,018th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -14 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
