The Halcyon Archipelago of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.375 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of well there's four of them. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The enormous but inefficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 1,512 trillion Koronas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,072 Koronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

International humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is various.

Ko-oren is ranked 58,593rd in the world and 58th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
