The White Republics of Kaedijork is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The cynical population of 550 million whites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equinox. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse white economy, worth 52.5 trillion sols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,493 sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaedijork's national animal is the eternal sun eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kaedijork is ranked 37,678th in the world and 2nd in Tellus Gaia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 91.63 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
