The TN-ZAP Advocate of Korovan Isles is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arthur Tatarov with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.482 billion Korovans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Healthcare, although Administration, Education, and Environment are also considered important, 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 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Korovan economy, worth 89.3 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 black market in Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, 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 35,994 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 capable 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 90,858th in the world and 4,304th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,974.98 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
