The Holy Green Nationstates Isle of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 20.997 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 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 2,844 trillion Koronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,470 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and all the playground's a stage for Ko-orenite schoolchildren. Crime 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 1,416th in the world and 3rd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Developed, scoring 98.01 on the Human Development Index.
