The Free Society of Kokkinostan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.993 billion Kokkinostanians 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, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kokkinos economy, worth a remarkable 2,799 trillion Standards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an amazing 200,091 Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. Crime is totally unknown. Kokkinostan's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kokkinostan is ranked 168,528th in the world and 1,173rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -38.46 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
