The Seafood Paradise of KohrAr is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.587 billion KohrArians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient KohrArian economy, worth a remarkable 4,405 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 513,017 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,684,942 per year while the poor average 6,174, a ratio of 758 to 1.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, children often kick oysters for amusement, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of KohrAr City's water use. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. KohrAr's national animal is the oyster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

KohrAr is ranked 202,979th in the world and 7,550th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 24.58 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
