The Free Land of Kabayan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Spaghetti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.473 billion Kabayanans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makibaka. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kabayanan economy, worth 97.0 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 65,842 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, people can get away with murder these days, and the government has been criticized for giving away Kabayan's territory to anyone who claims it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kabayan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kabayan is ranked 211,643rd in the world and 5,617th in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -97.42 on the Hayek Index.
