The Armed Republic of KOSKB is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.339 billion KOSKBnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samuraiinbunkerburg. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient KOSKBnian economy, worth 202 trillion grains of rice 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 151,425 grains of rice, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, gift baskets often contain working nukes, the Samuraiinbunkerburg Film Festival recently voted 'KOSKBnian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KOSKB's national animal is the 3d-woman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

KOSKB is ranked 168,209th in the world and 3,029th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 79.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
