The Holy Green Nationstates Isle of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, humorless population of 22.408 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gehrenna and Mayara. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 3,983 trillion Koronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,762 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, the Betamax versus VHS debate continues to rage strongly in Ko-oren, diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 96,694th in the world and 79th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Politically Free, scoring 66.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
