Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Kahanistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the President with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.119 billion Kahanistanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Masada. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kahanistanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,625 trillion shekels a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 215,394 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, one lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and under love's heavy burden the President sinks lower in the political right's esteem. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kahanistan's national animal is the Giant Python, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is freedom.

Kahanistan is ranked 840th in the world and 4th in Greater Prussia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
