The Commonwealth of Kanerland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rolian Kasi with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.097 billion Kaners have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rodderdam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.1%.

The all-consuming Kaner economy, worth 315 trillion Rodders a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,948 Rodders, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, tax assessment offices double as polling stations, not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, and the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanerland's national animal is the yorosi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Kanerland is ranked 45,064th in the world and 2,039th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 65.71 on the Human Development Index.
