The Fifth Dual Republics of Kanokla is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Henri LeValley with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.748 billion Kanoklans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgetown. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kanoklie economy, worth 410 trillion Ameris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 149,393 Ameris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor, and owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning. Crime is totally unknown. Kanokla's national animal is the tumbleweed, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Universal Secularism.

Kanokla is ranked 3,968th in the world and 78th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 95.17 on the Human Development Index.
