The Sprawling Kotdom of Konar is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bluie with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.624 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Konarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,172 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 Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 135,931 Chukas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation. 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 167,010th in the world and 8,998th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.51 Obesity Rate.
