The Unrecognized state of Kanta Hame is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by General Kotonen with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 19.632 billion Kanta Hameans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riihimaki. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kanta Hamean economy, worth a remarkable 1,202 trillion KH Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 61,273 KH Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', and edutainment video games are taking Kanta Hame's students to the next level. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanta Hame's national animal is the Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kanta Hame is ranked 37,593rd in the world and 304th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 24.2 flags saluted per person per day.
