The Sprawling Kotdom of Konar is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bluie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.973 billion Konarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emswe. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Konarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion Chukas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 137,545 Chukas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and nobody ever questions the unquestioned rule that questions must always be asked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Konar's national animal is the Tersik, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kat Worship.

Konar is ranked 146,942nd in the world and 7,129th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 42.82 Workforce Participation Rate.
