The United Socialist States of Kendarith is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Arthur Agrajag Prefect with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.145 billion Kendarithians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitalpolis. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kendarithian economy, worth 519 trillion Spinnars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 101,054 Spinnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime is totally unknown. Kendarith's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Kendarith is ranked 207,365th in the world and 7,470th in Osiris for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
