The Republic of Kovkastan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Markar Kosorov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.13 billion Kovkas 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artazor. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kovka economy, worth 127 trillion davorins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,446 davorins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Kovka lands, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Kovka justice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kovkastan's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oriental Orthodoxy.

Kovkastan is ranked 102,233rd in the world and 39th in Social Technocratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.78 on the Rand Index.
