The Protectorate of Komahina is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 643 million Komahina fans 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 Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope Café. The average income tax rate is 34.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Komahina fans' economy, worth 39.4 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 61,263 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Komahina's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Komahina is ranked 142,100th in the world and 7,095th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 25.99 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
