The Republic of Kannap is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Daniel Sanders-Wood with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, strictly enforced bedtime, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.118 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 government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malenium. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 4,953 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 189,671 kanmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, those who cut young children are told to cut it out, young people pass around flash drives filled with illegal music, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a 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 279,106th in the world and 304th in Forest for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 30.02 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
