The Liberal Socialist Democracy of Kantobliv is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader Mewnium with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.403 billion Kantians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultra Oblivew Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kantoblivian economy, worth 627 trillion Kantels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,373 Kantels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and hackers post hourly updates on international summits. Crime is totally unknown. Kantobliv's national animal is the Mew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Balance.

Kantobliv is ranked 8,802nd in the world and 12th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
