The Republic of Lillkanskoch is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Martin Eenpalu with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 897 million Lillkans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kansara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The all-consuming Lillkan economy, worth 92.7 trillion Lillkan Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,361 Lillkan Markkaa, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Lillkanskoch's national animal is the Swordfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Lillkanskoch is ranked 24,874th in the world and 1st in Marcapada for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,196.88 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
