The Fabulously Gay Paradise of Kannap is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Katherine Stewart with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.665 billion Kannapians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kannapolis. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 2,730 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, extremely specialized black market in Soda Sales and Gambling. 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 146,274 Royal Kannapian Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, Katherine Stewart is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, and "What's the Frequency, Katherine Stewart?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kannap's national animal is the Nighthawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Kannap.

Kannap is ranked 10,927th in the world and 41st in Forest for Most Corrupt Governments, with 99.32 Kickbacks Per Hour.
