The Special Fiefdom of Kohr is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benevolent Overlord F'Earstel with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.656 billion Kohrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Environment, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exponds. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Kohrian economy, worth 459 trillion Peter's Fleshes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,552 Peter's Fleshes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kohr's national animal is the Wild Ginger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Kohr is ranked 163,533rd in the world and 33rd in Taijitu for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 5,896.5 Standard Monetary Units.
