The Kari of Potchen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kari Mantag with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 27.607 billion Potchenians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarant. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The Potchenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,676 trillion Dragons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 133,176 Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potchen's national animal is the Bathu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Potchen is ranked 232,563rd in the world and 167th in Caer Sidi for Fattest Citizens, with 6.62 Obesity Rate.
