The Republic of Kokera is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 431 million Kokerans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kokituinana. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kokeran economy, worth 25.3 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,781 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kokera's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kokera is ranked 209,245th in the world and 3,124th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 10.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
