The Free Land of Kaulankiland is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 295 million Kaulankites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The powerhouse Kaulankian economy, worth 23.9 trillion units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 81,070 units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 302,431 per year while the poor average 15,237, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, the government is under the thumb of countless special interests, and annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kaulankiland's national animal is the snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kaulankiland is ranked 14,166th in the world and 498th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
