The Seafood Paradise of KohrAr is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, conspicuous electricity pylons, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.202 billion KohrArians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient KohrArian economy, worth a remarkable 6,772 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 604,605 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,556,230 per year while the poor average 6,815, a ratio of 815 to 1.

Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. KohrAr's national animal is the oyster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

KohrAr is ranked 245,246th in the world and 8,665th in the South Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -43.82 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
