The Liberal Socialist Democracy of Kantobliv is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader Mars with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.428 billion Kantians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultra Oblivw Mtropolis. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kantoblivian economy, worth a remarkable 1,338 trillion P$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 208,243 P$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau'. 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 Elemental Nature's Balance.

Kantobliv is ranked 206,772nd in the world and 392nd in The Union of Democratic States for Fattest Citizens, with 1.4 Obesity Rate.
