The Kallandikonk

Population8.636 billion



The Republic of The Kallandikonk is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jonathan with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.636 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kallandikonkian economy, worth 708 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,066 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 11,042nd in the world and 519th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,521.56 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
