The Once and Future Unicorn of -Kanaia- is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 26.529 billion Kanaiaians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Returnia. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The -Kanaia-ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 trillion Adrians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 57,098 Adrians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Returnia, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Kanaia-'s national animal is the Oliphant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kanaism.

-Kanaia- is ranked 243,127th in the world and 6,676th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
