The Incorporated States of Keanau is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 129 million Keanauans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Keanauan economy, worth 4.86 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 37,647 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, large sections of Keanau have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keanau's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Keanau is ranked 100,146th in the world and 4,039th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 33 on the Hayek Index.
