The Tyranny of Korovan Isles is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arthur Tatarov with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.926 billion Korovans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Healthcare, with Environment, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korovka. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Korovan economy, worth 121 trillion Prydanian Crosses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,838 Prydanian Crosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are bored of easy crossword puzzles, replacement organs are grown in vats, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korovan Isles's national animal is the Auburn Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Laurentist-Thaunicca.

Korovan Isles is ranked 20,104th in the world and 1,089th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,058.84 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
