The Republic of Kannap is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Daniel Sanders-Wood with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.289 billion Kannapians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anderson. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 4,962 trillion kanmarks 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 Tourism. 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 188,751 kanmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, the New Kannapian Thesaurus lists "love" and "oppress" as synonyms, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is a serious problem, 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 69th in the world and 2nd in Forest for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 26,534.52 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
