The Free Land of Kocherian

Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Free Land of Kocherian is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 502 million Kocherians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrov hojnosti. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kocherian economy, worth 43.8 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 87,338 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Kocherian, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and all industry is owned and run by the government. 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 Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kocherian is ranked 54,544th in the world and 2,576th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
