The United States of Kappacon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kim-Gwang with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.344 billion Kappaconians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gyeongbaek. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kappaconian economy, worth 302 trillion Won a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,074 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kappacon's national animal is the Alaska Pollock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Buddhism.

Kappacon is ranked 221,050th in the world and 9,708th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -243.42 on the Hayek Index.
