The Fabulously Gay Paradise of Kannap is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Connor the Android with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.203 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.

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 2,831 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. 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 147,447 Royal Kannapian Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The price of freedom is about half a million Royal Kannapian Kronor, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, holiday-makers leave on the same clandestine boats that illegal immigrants arrive in, and fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in. Crime is a major 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 229,458th in the world and 431st in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 56.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
