The Kallandikonk

Population6.904 billion



The Republic of The Kallandikonk is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jonathan with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 6.904 billion Kallandikonkians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kallandikonkian economy, worth 534 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,356 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, in a fit of passion Jonathan has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Kallandikonk's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lutheran.

The Kallandikonk is ranked 7,441st in the world and 362nd in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 124 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
