The Fifth Dual Republics of Kanokla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Joshua Reed with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.334 billion Kanoklans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgetown. The average income tax rate is 90.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kanoklie economy, worth 322 trillion Ameris a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,974 Ameris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, calling dibs is an unalienable right, not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Kanokla. Crime is totally unknown. Kanokla's national animal is the tumbleweed, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Universal Secularism.

Kanokla is ranked 6,140th in the world and 83rd in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,412.09 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
