The Free Land of Kocherian is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gunther Larson with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 826 million Kocherians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kocherian economy, worth 84.4 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 major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 102,217 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, Gunther Larson is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. 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 218,485th in the world and 9,862nd in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14.7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
