The Federation of Kangatupu is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 326 million Kangatupians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 10.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kangatupian economy, worth 20.3 trillion Kangatupic Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 62,326 Kangatupic Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kangatupu's national animal is the Frigatebird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kangatupu is ranked 65,653rd in the world and 326th in United Kingdom for Most Cultured, scoring 69 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
