The Special Fiefdom of Kohr is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benevolent Overlord F'Earstel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.512 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exponds. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Kohrian economy, worth 936 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 Book Publishing. 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 56,711 Peter's Fleshes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

To 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, people caught mistreating Kohr's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, and the number of children one can have is restricted by law. 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 312,224th in the world and 41st in Taijitu for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -23.62 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
