The Android Sent by Cyberlife of Kannap is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Connor the Android with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.078 billion Kannapians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malenium. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 3,190 trillion Royal Kannapian Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Soda Sales. 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 an impressive 158,890 Royal Kannapian Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, and coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kannap's national animal is the red panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Kannap.

Kannap is ranked 100,133rd in the world and 310th in Forest for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,034.74 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
