Cohdopia, officially the Principality of Cohdopia, is a country located in Europe. Sometime in the 2010s, it was split into two countries after a period of civil unrest: Allebahst and Babahl. However, the two were reunited in March 2019 after events at the Cohdopian Embassy in the United States.

The aforementioned embassy was shared between the two countries, with each country taking symmetrical halves of the building, save for the Theatrum Neutralis in the middle, which was deemed American soil.

It is renowned for its nature, with the butterfly and flower being symbols of the country and included in its flag. Before reunification, Allebahst retained the flower in its flag, while Babahl used the butterfly motif.

The smuggling ring[]

Quercus Alba, as the leader of an international smuggling ring, utilized his position as the ambassador of Allebahst to become legally invulnerable in both the American courts and those of his own country. He took on the façade of a feeble old man who blamed himself for everything that went wrong in his embassy so that no-one would ever suspect him of any real wrongdoing.

Babahl's most notable export was a special ink made from whitcrystal oil. This oil became a target of the smuggling ring, which used the ink to make almost indistinguishable counterfeit currency in several other countries, which ruined the economy of Zheng Fa in particular. Because of this, Interpol put severe limits on the export of Babahlese ink. Manny Coachen, the secretariat of the Babahlese Embassy in the United States, was also a high-ranking member of the ring who governed over the illegal export of Babahlese ink for counterfeiting purposes.

Due to the efforts of Miles Edgeworth and others, Alba was ultimately disbarred from his position as ambassador of Allebahst by Interpol agent Shi-Long Lang. No longer impregnable to the laws, Edgeworth was able to expose Alba's involvement with the smuggling ring and finally defeat him. Cohdopia was eventually reunited after Alba's defeat.
