The Android Sent by Cyberlife of Kannap is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Connor the Android with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, fear of technology, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.497 billion Kannapians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malenium. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 3,116 trillion Royal Kannapian Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 159,836 Royal Kannapian Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kannap's national animal is the Nighthawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Kannap.

Kannap is ranked 128,564th in the world and 182nd in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -52.67 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
