The Anti-essentialist Disorder of Kanoria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Apposition of Organs with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.687 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 5,577 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 269,633 şurfarns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, bars are packed at all hours, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. 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 269,497th in the world and 198th in The Social Liberal Union for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.22 crimes per hour.
