The Parliamentary Republic of Kernansquillec is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.719 billion Kernansquillecians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kernansquillec City. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Kernansquillecian economy, worth 788 trillion Urbks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,092 Urbks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, the internet has been placed under government control, and citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Football.
