The Empire of Kovano is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 601 million Kovanoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krovanio. The average income tax rate is 38.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kovanoan economy, worth 69.4 trillion Krovens a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,394 Krovens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, women across the country are tying the knot, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, and citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kovano's national animal is the Grizzl bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kovano is ranked 181,764th in the world and 132nd in Ascenthia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.62 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
