The Free Atlantic Republic of Kenowa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rodolf Vierett with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.423 billion Kenovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kordoba. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kenovese economy, worth 522 trillion Kenovese Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,570 Kenovese Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, wheelchair-enabled paratroopers need access ramps to get onto planes but not off them, and senior executives have become freelance basket-weavers in search of less stress and better work-life balance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kenowa's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Protentastism.

Kenowa is ranked 121,303rd in the world and 4,264th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 15.78 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
