The Socialist People's Republic of Kavamkao is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade-Governor Jacob Martinelle with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.947 billion Kavans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Tyreux. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The Kavan economy, worth 733 trillion Kavamarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 92,359 Kavamarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Grey Wolf Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kavamkao's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Kavamkao is ranked 26,422nd in the world and 3rd in Refugia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,760.26 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
