The Seafood Paradise of KohrAr is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.004 billion KohrArians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient KohrArian economy, worth a remarkable 4,730 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 525,420 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,800,235 per year while the poor average 6,297, a ratio of 762 to 1.

The full title of Hon Leader Vcte Mgve MF SPKLM GCKE runs to several pages, whole-wheat loaves can only be ordered on the dark web, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and the studies of art and philosophy are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. KohrAr's national animal is the oyster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

KohrAr is ranked 2,247th in the world and 73rd in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 168.36 Quips Per Hour.
