The Democratic Socialist State of Kjanu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President On Songhyon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.331 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Neo Neo Jhanthu. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kjanuan economy, worth 755 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 174,362 Rias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the government is flooded with compensation requests, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime is totally unknown. Kjanu's national animal is the Canary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kjanu is ranked 3,579th in the world and 4th in Northern Utopia for Most Influential, scoring 17,276 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
