The Free Land of Kocherian is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Gunther Larson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 842 million Kocherians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrov hojnosti. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kocherian economy, worth 84.2 trillion Dollars 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 major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,943 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Kocherian as 'your finger, you fool', the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kocherian's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kocherian is ranked 8,933rd in the world and 383rd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,978.78 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
