The Santa of Kantobliv is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader Mars with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, vat-grown people, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.05 billion Kantians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultra Oblivew Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kantoblivian economy, worth a remarkable 1,742 trillion P$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 216,446 P$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime is totally unknown. Kantobliv's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is lmntal Natur's Balanc.

Kantobliv is ranked 237,707th in the world and 199th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
