The National State of Konolas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Natsional'noye Vozrozhdeniye Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.633 billion Konolasians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Igorgrad. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Konolasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,195 trillion Barter-based Economies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,274 Barter-based Economies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Barter-based Economies are being blown on orbital weapons development, atheists on vacation find Orthodox Christianity's scriptures make useful doorstops, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. 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 Two-Headed Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Konolas is ranked 187,275th in the world and 9,575th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
