The Kingdom of Kanskje is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kaldt with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.148 billion Kanskjeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kanskje City. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kanskjean economy, worth 92.5 trillion Kanskjean Kroner a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,563 Kanskjean Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, when flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!", and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanskje's national animal is the Anivia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kanskje is ranked 14,232nd in the world and 770th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.43 bananas ingested per day.
