The Holy Consumerist Republic of Kancia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Ekhon Numik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.568 billion Patriots are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kancia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Patriotic economy, worth 190 trillion Kancian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 121,513 Kancian Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,023,832 per year while the poor average 2,700, a ratio of 379 to 1.

Churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, and street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Kancia's national animal is the Kancian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Kancian Privately-Owned Church.

Kancia is ranked 125,461st in the world and 149th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Rudest Citizens, with 46.03 Insults Per Minute.
