The Republic of Koayo is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 252 million Koayoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Koayoan economy, worth 9.12 trillion Koayoan pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 36,172 Koayoan pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry, voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koayo's national animal is the cockatiel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Koayo is ranked 69,909th in the world and 82nd in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 60.03 on the Human Development Index.
