The Jingoistic States of Kennardia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 619 million Kennardians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rostakeri. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Kennardian economy, worth 30.2 trillion Keris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,736 Keris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, parking's carefree without parking car fees, and public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kennardia's national animal is the ant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kennardia is ranked 64,877th in the world and 1,225th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1.52 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
