LeaderPresident Aguilar


The Egalitarian Republic of Koranz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Aguilar with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.479 billion Koranzians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoriza. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Koranzian economy, worth 620 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 138,424 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Dragonball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koranz's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Koranz is ranked 205,811th in the world and 19th in Valaryia for Most Conservative, scoring 37.5 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
