The Socialist Republic of Koayo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jurta with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.53 billion Koayoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shaken. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Koayoan economy, worth 142 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 Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 56,180 Koayoan pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, there's a hole in the heart of every Koayoan city, and religious education is a new government priority. Crime is totally unknown. Koayo's national animal is the cockatiel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Koayo is ranked 229,807th in the world and 257th in Refugia for Most Patriotic, with 3.17 flags saluted per person per day.
