The frighteningly efficient Kowaní economy, worth a remarkable 2,745 trillion Digital Kaolis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal.

Average income is an amazing 295,824 Digital Kaolis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, snitches get riches, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs.

Kowani's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.
