The Anti-essentialist Disorder of Kanoria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Apposition of Organs with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.584 billion Kanorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kas-to. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kanorian economy, worth a remarkable 4,168 trillion şurfarns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 267,493 şurfarns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, public parks are littered with cigarette butts, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanoria's national animal is the Kanoruru Snow Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is urum raido.

Kanoria is ranked 479th in the world and 3rd in Social Liberal Union for Longest Average Lifespans, with 96.49 Years.
