The Federated Regions of Konolas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Rodya Voronin with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.273 billion Konolasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Igorgrad. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Konolasian economy, worth 654 trillion Tyns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 153,202 Tyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Konolas's national animal is the Two-Headed Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Cristianity.

Konolas is ranked 30,174th in the world and 1,010th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 654 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
