Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Union of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the 23 Committee with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, rampant corporate plagiarism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.378 billion Unionites 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 Union Capital Territory. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The large but underdeveloped Ko-orenian economy, worth 708 trillion Korona aos 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 62,288 Korona aos, 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 ao, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is various.

Ko-oren is ranked 82nd in Atlantian Oceania and 143,815th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
