The United States of Kappacon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hwang-Cheon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.773 billion Kappaconians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gyeongbaek. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kappaconian economy, worth 219 trillion Won a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,939 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Hwang-Cheon's wardrobe, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kappacon's national animal is the Alaska Pollock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism and Buddhism.

Kappacon is ranked 163,968th in the world and 7,656th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.24 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
