The Parliamentary Republic of Kernansquillec is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.135 billion Kernansquillecians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kernansquillec City. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in the Prime Minister's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kernansquillec's national animal is the Kernansquillecan Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Football, and its currency is the Urbk.
