The Democratic Commonwealth of The Kohen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Aelia Landzaat with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.797 billion Kohrs are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaliciya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.3%.

The all-consuming Koheni economy, worth 194 trillion Korinias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 69,587 Korinias, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Populations of two-headed Koheni White Falcons have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, military funding has been stripped back, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. The Kohen's national animal is the Koheni White Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Judaism.

The Kohen is ranked 115,699th in the world and 45th in Northern Utopia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 262.56 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
