The Holy Empire of Kappan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope Saul XVI with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 3.417 billion Kappanese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devotion. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kappanese economy, worth 410 trillion Deniers a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,092 Deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's never "just a game" with Kappanese sports fans, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, private law firms are unheard of, and police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kappan's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christian fundamentalism.

Kappan is ranked 3,519th in the world and 162nd in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 39 Valid Endorsements.
