The Holy Green Federation of Kannap is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Malachi Stevens with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.572 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, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kannapolis. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 1,574 trillion Royal Kannapian Kronor a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,039 Royal Kannapian Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 155,318th in the world and 335th in Forest for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 45.35 Workforce Participation Rate.
