The Federal Republic of Kanlidia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Juan Punchman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.564 billion Kanlidians 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, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okarito. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kanlidian economy, worth a remarkable 1,894 trillion Kias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,194 Kias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Kanlidia is often a lifetime appointment. Crime is totally unknown. Kanlidia's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kanlidia is ranked 18,223rd in the world and 820th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 78.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
