The Fabulously Gay Paradise of Kannap is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mother Katherine Stewart with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.813 billion Kannapians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 Kannapolis. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kannapian economy, worth a remarkable 2,576 trillion Royal Kannapian Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 144,640 Royal Kannapian Kronor, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Men are expected to stay home to fix funny noises in the attic, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, and many Kannapians are their brothers' keepers. Crime is a major problem, 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 14,760th in the world and 3rd in Padradis for Highest Average Incomes, with 144,640.76 Standard Monetary Units.
