The Chaotic Democratic Republic of The Far Kaaplands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Allied Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.823 billion Kaaptains enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Alliance City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaaplander economy, worth 641 trillion Evertree Enblems a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,800 Evertree Enblems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and the World Chaotic Democratic Republic Games have been won again by The Far Kaaplands as no other country cares enough to compete. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Far Kaaplands's national animal is the kappa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Faith of Ancients.

The Far Kaaplands is ranked 58,425th in the world and 56th in The Free Nations Region for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
