The State of Kannap is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jeremy Andersson with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.207 billion Kannapians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — 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 93.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 1,993 trillion Royal Kannapian Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 123,016 Royal Kannapian Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's not mass murder when the government does it, the new Nighthawk Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, the insurance industry is outlawed, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kannap's national animal is the Nighthawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Church of Kannap.

Kannap is ranked 141,574th in the world and 358th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.67 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
