The Great republic of Kanerland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chri Thomas with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.04 billion Kaners 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rodderdam. The average income tax rate is 47.3%.
The powerhouse Kanerlandian economy, worth 200 trillion Rodders a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,373 Rodders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanerland's national animal is the bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
