The Collective of Korovan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Karanai with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.265 billion Korovanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zerox. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Korovanian economy, worth 207 trillion Karovs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,483 Karovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and Karanai has just been declared ruler of Korovan in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korovan's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Korovan is ranked 30,307th in the world and 13th in Union of Allied States for Most Influential, scoring 1,429 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
