The Halcyon Archipelago of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.217 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, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of well there's four of them. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The enormous but inefficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 1,502 trillion Koronas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,209 Koronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

International humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 various.

Ko-oren is ranked 94,188th in the world and 133rd in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 860.24 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
