Kolechia is a neighboring country northwest of Arstotzka. After the Six-Year War with Arstotzka, entrants from and via Kolechia are finally able to enter Arstotzka through the border town Grestin, although entrants from Kolechia are occasionally harassed[1] by the Ministry of Admission and the Arstotzkan government due to the terrorist threat they pose.

Conditions in Kolechia are described as "ten times worse" than in Arstotzka by Sergiu.[2]

Despite high hopes after the opening of the border,[3] tensions between Arstotzka and Kolechia continue to grow throughout the game, up to the point where the future of the Grestin border checkpoint becomes uncertain.[4] Depending on the choices the inspector makes during the story, Arstotzka and Kolechia may eventually find common ground and reach a tentative understanding, which will allow the border to remain open.[5]

Cities in Kolechia Edit

Intepretations Edit

The name of this country is possibly derived from the Russian word kalechit (калечить), 'to maim'[6]
