The Holy Empire of Kappan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pope Saul XVI with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.788 billion Kappanese 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devotion. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kappanese economy, worth 452 trillion Deniers a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,514 Deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, Kappanese people have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and glamping Kappanese won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kappan's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christian fundamentalism.

Kappan is ranked 45,396th in the world and 1,823rd in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,056.26 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
