The Sleeping Land of Kangarawa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Adrienne Miller with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, cheerful population of 24.821 billion Kangarawans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tasman. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kangarawan economy, worth a remarkable 4,237 trillion Wazoos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,717 Wazoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kangarawa's national animal is the Tasmanian Devil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Proferism.

Kangarawa is ranked 3,166th in the world and 78th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 21.46 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
