The Holy Green Nationstates Isle of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 21.475 billion Ko-orenites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gehrenna and Mayara. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 3,350 trillion Koronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 156,019 Koronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 2,334th in the world and 5th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Governments, scoring 49.39 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
