The Halcyon Archipelago of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, humorless population of 25.315 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Capitals. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 5,527 trillion Koronas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,363 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 255,963rd in the world and 71st in Anaia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -34 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
