Pacchipyan-iki is a region in south of Kojo flag ddtuga.png Kojo. Its geography is dominated by the Kime river delta and the cost. The terrain is flat, with pasture farming and some wheat and rice dominating the agricultural sector. The largest harbour city of the country, Jaka, is the economical and cultural heart of the region. The region is very exposed to the ocean and flooding from the river, with many dams cutting through to the countryside. At the same time the region is one of the most densely populated areas in the country, due to the close proximity of the three major cities and the intense utilisation of farming land. Due to the economic activity in the harbours and a below national average unemployment, the region's GDP is higher than the national average. The region benefits from excellent connectivity to the rest of Kojo, as it sits at the intersection of the two major traffic arteries of the country; the river Kime and the coast.

Up to the Kojolese unification in the 1620's the region had a long tradition of being an independent kingdom, with the city of Jaka having a special role a a independent trading city from the early 16th century on. Even today the region retains a distinct character, noticeable by the particular dialect spoken in the countryside, a special architectural style developed in the medieval merchant cities, and a unique sense of identification with the land and its relationship to the water.
