The Democratic Nation of Kenowa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Viktor Naverekamensk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5.242 billion Kenoveses are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aranzazu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kenoves economy, worth 792 trillion Rubles a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 151,095 Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 578,717 per year while the poor average 27,228, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

Planespotters are emigrating in droves, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, and pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kenowa's national animal is the Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kenov Orthodox Chruch.

Kenowa is ranked 6,312th in the world and 300th in Osiris for Rudest Citizens, with 132.99 Insults Per Minute.
