The High Kingdom of Kotok is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High king Larry with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 1.709 billion Kotokians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kutokret. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kotokian economy, worth 193 trillion Bulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 113,444 Bulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, much of Kotok's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, they who do not work shall not eat, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kotok's national animal is the sabertooth kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Klaism.

Kotok is ranked 125,757th in the world and 9th in The Tvelmark for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,348.86 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
