The Democratic Socialist State of Kjanu is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Karugama Mayumi with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.297 billion Kjanuans 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Neo Neo Jhanthu. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kjanuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,104 trillion Rias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 175,431 Rias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime is totally unknown. Kjanu's national animal is the Canary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kjanu is ranked 206,366th in the world and 77th in Northern Utopia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -23.96 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
