The United Regions of Konolas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by NAC Ivan Markov with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.424 billion Konolasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Igorgrad. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Konolasian economy, worth 541 trillion Tyns 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 common. Average income is an impressive 158,045 Tyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color". 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 Cristianity.

Konolas is ranked 26,295th in the world and 1,397th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 890.49 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
