The Disputed Territories of Kovichnia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 992 million Kovichnians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andrennos. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kovichnian economy, worth 90.1 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,843 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All guns must be registered, governments opposing Kovichnia are beset by rebels, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kovichnia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kovichnia is ranked 139,803rd in the world and 7,165th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 7.74 Prayers Per Hour.
