The United States of Kappacon is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 124 million Kappaconians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 36.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kappaconian economy, worth 9.72 trillion Won a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,347 Won, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. 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.

Kappacon is ranked 92,004th in the world and 4,552nd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 56.72 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
