The Republic of United Kolane is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 255 million United Kolaneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 22.4%.

The all-consuming United Kolanean economy, worth 25.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 100,333 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Kolane's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

United Kolane is ranked 44,025th in the world and 9th in Storage for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,372.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
