The Sulic Empire of Konolas is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Andrey Sucli with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.336 billion Konolasians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Igorgrad. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Konolasian economy, worth 345 trillion Tyns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 147,761 Tyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, end-of-year production reports state that the revolution is really going with a bang, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Konolas's national animal is the Tiger, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Orthodox Cristianity.

Konolas is ranked 8,187th in the world and 2nd in Union Socialiste for Healthiest Citizens, with 14.86 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
