Kan Po

Population8.182 billion

LeaderPeoples Representative Julius Augustus


The Communist Democracy of Kan Po is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Peoples Representative Julius Augustus with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.182 billion Kan Poans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subodai. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kan Poan economy, worth a remarkable 1,088 trillion Dollars 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 133,056 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kan Po's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kan Po is ranked 10,967th in the world and 233rd in Lazarus for Most Politically Free, scoring 82.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
