The Armed Republic of Kavanis is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.358 billion Kavanisians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harte. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kavanisian economy, worth 374 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 111,536 bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 624,940 per year while the poor average 9,877, a ratio of 63.3 to 1.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Kavanis, retail boutiques encourage citizens to honor their military veterans by purchasing flag-patterned underwear, the police double as repo men, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kavanis's national animal is the crocodile, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Kavanis is ranked 32,396th in the world and 1,698th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 174.98 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
