The Unrecognized state of Kanta Hame is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Kotonen with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.918 billion Kanta Hameans 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riihimaki. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kanta Hamean economy, worth 973 trillion KH Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 57,567 KH Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in Kanta Hame's hospitals, Kanta Hame's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, guns are banned, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanta Hame's national animal is the Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kanta Hame is ranked 82,663rd in the world and 314th in 10000 Islands for Largest Black Market, with 809 billion Standard Monetary Units.
