The Republic of Kovish is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bulbolito Bayagbag with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, avowedly heterosexual populace, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.263 billion Kovishians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fekfek. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kovishian economy, worth 126 trillion Kupals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,889 Kupals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, Kovish's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, and single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kovish's national animal is the Turat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is MiLord.

Kovish is ranked 152,229th in the world and 6,097th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 19.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
