The Free Land of Kocherian is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gunther Larson with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.186 billion Kocherians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kocherian economy, worth 135 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,290 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Kocherian after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, the government pours millions of Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually, and blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love. 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 225,997th in the world and 10,424th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.76 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
