The United States of Kappacon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hwang-Cheon with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.177 billion Kappaconians 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 enormous, 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 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kappaconian economy, worth 266 trillion Won a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,401 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. 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 92,061st in the world and 4,023rd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 141 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
