The Communist Republic of Kocherian is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Eivind Olofsson with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.78 billion Kocherians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Folkets Hjem. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kocherian economy, worth 206 trillion Smakers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,099 Smakers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Arctic Wolves into functioning members of society, solid-gold toilets are Kocherian prisons' least expensive furnishings, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kocherian's national animal is the Arctic Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Episcopalian.

Kocherian is ranked 43,489th in the world and 1,921st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,375.82 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
