The Democratic Republic of Konouj is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 365 million Konoujians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waves. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Konoujian economy, worth 32.6 trillion Karnas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,184 Karnas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

College athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Konouj's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Konouj is ranked 183,886th in the world and 7,335th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.01 Crimes Per Hour.
