The Parliamentary Republic of Kernansquillec is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.475 billion Kernansquillecians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kernansquillec City. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kernansquillecian economy, worth a remarkable 1,179 trillion Urbks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,647 Urbks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Kernansquillecian Liberator", religious people are committed to mental institutions for treatment, and books are so highly regarded in Kernansquillec that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kernansquillec's national animal is the Kernansquillecan Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kernansquillec is ranked 176,301st in the world and 124th in Rushmore for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -16.7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
