The Free Land of Kocherian is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gunther Larson with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 802 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 receives no funds. 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 81.3 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 101,419 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. 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 209,849th in the world and 9,452nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -161.13 on the Hayek Index.
