The Community of Koiho is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Executive Committee with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.26 billion Koiho are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anastas. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Koiho economy, worth 820 trillion rskonas 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 66,906 rskonas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Koiho has been greatly criticised for its isolationist policies, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, the Koiho Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and on-duty Air Koiho flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koiho's national animal is the river salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Koiho is ranked 256,841st in the world and 161st in The Social Liberal Union for Most Patriotic, with 0.8 flags saluted per person per day.
