Subdivisions
Ko-oren is home to 12 subdivisions, which are all free to find their own title (state, province, etc). 'Oren' is a native Ko-orenite word for land/region.

Census Areas
All of Ko-oren is divided into 48 census areas with an almost equal population. A census area must be fully located within one subdivision, however, which skews the population balance per census area considerably.

Naming conventions and Titles
In a country torn apart by 10 major languages, naming conventions are very hard to pin down. Generally, there are three kinds of names in Ko-oren:
Cat. I Names in native languages (Gehrennan, Tarrashall, Aerellen, Aviansolan)
Cat. II Names in foreign arrivals (English, Dutch, French, Japanese, Mawr, Finisterran)
Cat. III Names in third languages (languages spoken by recent immigrants, other languages, etc)

For Cat. III, Ko-oren makes no special distinction or changes. These names are accepted as is, in the way they would be used in their language (family name/given name first, patronyms/matronyms, etc).

For Cat. I and II, Ko-oren forces the given name to be used first, and the family name last (even for Japanese).

Most names look like this:
Pirdhuleska Keldholinthen (Gehrennan name), given name Pirdhuleska, family name Keldholinthen.
Some people opt to give their child a name in one of the Cat. II languages, but still want to give a native-like second name, such as:
Célé Joljolaika Peltier (French given and family name, Gehrennan middle name).
Godmi Aiamelle yCewnchir (Mawr given and family name, Aerellen middle name).

Usually, the given and family names match: Francophone speakers often have French last names, live in a Francophone area, and give their children a Francophone name. This is not always the case, however, and in recent decades the number of language-independent first names is on the rise.

Calendars and Holidays
While Ko-oren has joined most of the rest of the Multiverse in its use of the Gregorian calendar, all working days, holidays, and other important dates are tied to the native calendar.

The 365 days are divided into 10 months of 36 days each (=360), with a holiday at the end of the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and 10th month (=365). In leap years, a 366th day is added near the end of the 2nd month, coinciding with 29 February. The 36-day month is divided into 6 weeks of 6 days each.

Rent, as well as most other payments, are paid monthly (= every 36.5 days, accounting for the holiday at the end of each second month).

The working week lasts for four days in most weeks, and five in some other weeks. In a 36-day month, the first and fourth weeks have five working days, and the second, third, fifth, and sixth weeks have four working days. In a 37-day month, the first, fourth, and sixth week have five working days, the others all have four working days. Most weekends therefore last two days, yet some last only one day.

The native calendar starts on the shortest day, 21 December.

Observed holidays:
- Christmas (25 Dec)
- New Years' Day (1 Jan)
(- Grekha (29 Feb))
- Razhukha (3 Mar)
- Atlantian Oceania Day (28 Mar)
- Day of History (27 Apr)
- Dorakha (15 May)
- Day of Nature (22 May)
- Day of Shadows (3 Jul)
- Girikha (27 Jul)
- Day of Museums (26 Sep)
- Jarakha (8 Oct)
- Dragonfly Day (26 Nov) - the main national holiday
- Zedhhakha (20 Dec)

The 10 months are named as follows (in Gehrennan, followed by its English equivalent):
- Kidignir (Lightwake) 21 Dec-25 Jan
- Razhuditla (Frostreign) 26 Jan-3 Mar
- Pithelelash (Newgrowth) 4 Mar-8 Apr
- Dorapi (Greentide) 9 Apr-15 May
- Tobtoren (Brightcrest) 16 May-20 Jun
- Girizedh (Daywane) 21 Jun-27 Jul
- Selpernim (Sweltersky) 28 Jul-1 Sep
- Jaranethan (Ambercrown) 2 Sep-8 Oct
- Tharathju (Harvestreach) 9 Oct-13 Nov
- Zedhasim (Witherhelm) 14 Nov-20 Dec

All six days of the week are named, and the nights separating the days are named as well:
- 0th night: Kuhrathu (Quietude)
- 1st day: Rensohn (Wrensong)
- 1st night: Rendahrap (Raindrop)
- 2nd day: Bandahr (Wanderall)
- 2nd night: Paturidh (Feathereve)
- 3rd day: Lathajul (Latherwell)
- 3rd night: Paturakh (Petrichor)
- 4th day: Kaladar (Cloudrift)
- 4th night: Tharkob (Starcurve)
- 5th day: Shirobodh (Citronbread)
- 5th night: Bathepas (Waterflask)
- 6th day: Kinthaj (Kinstay)
- (0th night of the following week): Kuhrathu (Quietude)

In the final 2 years, students have the opportunity to pick subjects according to their wants and needs, preparing them for tertiary education. In many cases, tertiary education majors require a student to have completed a certain high school subject.
Year 12's philosophy of science includes some history of science, astronomy, navigation, etc.
Year 13's final project is typically a largish project, involving literature studies and a presentation.
Year 13 ends with a central exam in each of the subjects a student has followed during their 6 years of high school, excluding PhysEd.

Universities (colleges)
Tertiary education in Ko-oren is offered by Universities across the country. Despite Ko-oren's population being about 27 million, there seem to be very many institutions per capita (which, in most nations, is about 1 million people per university). This is because tertiary education institutions are often arranged by faculty, grouping similar degrees together in one institution. Nowadays, students often enrol in a single degree at a single institution, but may follow subjects at nearby institutions as elective subjects (which are a mandatory part of any degree). In this way, students finish their degree while having a broader understanding covering multiple sciences. There are 48 institutions in all.

Television Channels
With so many languages, television can look messy and inefficient from a foreign point of view. Within Ko-oren, however, the patchwork of channels, languages etcetera works alright. For the largest channels, subtitle packages in various languages are available from Teletext, via Smart TV, and various other applications and web services.

Number. Name: Language, Purpose (Broadcasting company)
1. TV1: All languages, news. Cycles through news and weather, one language at a time, in 15-20 minute broadcasts per language. Often, the different languages focus on slightly different stories, though all national stories are the same (owned by RFT-K/KVM)
2. TV2: All languages (depending on area), info(tainment), culture, education, talk shows. The primary channel for infotainment, talk shows, investigative journalism, cultural programming, and education, focusing on native content. Every language has its own schedule, and is broadcast in a different area. All 11 channels are also available at channels 20-30 (owned by RFT-K/KVM)
3. TV3: All languages (depending on area), sports, music, popular culture, children's TV, series.

Prominent Written Media
Nearly every city has its own local newspaper, filled with anything between municipal legislation to local events going on, and from obituaries to uplifting neighbourhood news. For cities upwards of 250,000 inhabitants, there are usually multiple local newspapers, each covering one part of the city (but with plenty of overlap).

In Ko-oren, as much as in other nations, internet has made the role of printed media much smaller.

Newspapers
Wrensong Weekly (English, in-depth journalism)
Waterflask Weekly (English, news backgrounds)
Interquirer (English, French, Dutch, Gehrennan, international news)
Aurora (all major languages, daily)

News websites
nova.gov.kor (multilingual, official)
joho.web.kor (multilingual)
ma.mun.kor (multilingual, local news)
quac.kor (twitter-like website, powered by twii.tur)

Magazines

Phone numbers
Every number starts with a 0.
The second and third numbers correspond to the census area, of which there are 48 in Ko-oren. The second and third number are simply the number of the census area, though areas with a number under 10 will have 50 added to them. Simply said, the second and third numbers range from 10 to 48 and from 51 to 59.
The fourth through to the tenth number are free for that census area to give out. Usually, the fourth number cannot be a 0. Usually, if it is a 1, it is a protected service (governmental, educational, medical, police, etc).

Not everyone lives in a larger building, property or around a (court)yard. In this case, the building name is dropped.

Last names may be abbreviated as well. In case of Gehrennan (Classical) Ko-orenite names, the suffixes are often shortened. -Ingun -> -Ing', -erinthen -> -Eth', -inden -> 'Ind', etc.

Government Agencies
(For ministries, see here for ministries and affiliated secretariats)

Ko-oren's government is made up of one national government, supported by 12 ministries. These 12 ministries are further supported by 12 secretariats. These 24 entities are considered the 'national government' or 'federal government' or something to that effect. The National Government is further supported by a myriad of local, regional, municipal, subdivisional (provincial), and even national agencies. These are as follows:

Subdivisions
For every subdivision, there is one subdivisional government:
Shire of Surbourne / Oren of Gehrenna (Orenim Gehrennini) / 四島県 (Orena Joshimani) / Département Côte Australienne / Provincie Intermare / Orenim Maorenini / Communidade Finisterrense / Sir Mawry / Aorion Aerelleni / Regio Sudaefjoll / Regio Poolrugge (Regio Noordoren) / Riding of West Strand (Yorni West Strand)

Municipalities
Subdivisions are further divided into Ma (cities) and Oren (rural regions: lit. 'Country'). Ma are comprised of single cities, a collection of separate cities/towns/settlements that are built next to one another, or even a group of towns/villages near one another. Ma must have at least one settlement of over 10,000, or must combine to a population of at least 25,000. Oren are generally large regions that do not meet the above requirements. While Ma are generally quite small in area, Oren range from tiny to huge.

Regional
Regional agencies are not tied to subdivisions, Ma, or Oren, but rather fulfill a certain need to regions made up of one or multiple subdivisions, Ma, or Oren. These range from environmental protection and education in the Amandine (a region encompassing parts of three different subdivisions), to water management in the bay of Ko-oren (not technically part of any subdivision), to sports in a single city. Agencies are generally tied to one Ministry or Secretariat. Sometimes, the agency is directly dependent on the ministry/secretariat. Other times, the agency is a completely separate entity whose goals are not set by a ministry/secretariat.
