The Federation of Kannap is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Jeremy Andersson with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.257 billion Kannapians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The enormous, pro-business government prioritizes Environment, although Education, Social Policy, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kannapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth 521 trillion Royal Kannapian Kronor a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. Average income is 83,422 Royal Kannapian Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.
The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the government is reining in public spending, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kannap's national animal is the Nighthawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
