The Khaganate of Koryohan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Khagan Vadil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.511 billion Astorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seoul. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astorian economy, worth 178 trillion won a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,879 won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, contestants on Koryohan's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that he is in fact a crook after all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koryohan's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Koryohan is ranked 10,185th in the world and 577th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 86.11 on the Human Development Index.
