OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United States of Kappacon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kim-Gwang with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.182 billion Kappaconians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gyeongbaek. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kappaconian economy, worth 267 trillion Won a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,625 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, gossip magazines have pictures of Kim-Gwang sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and the diplomatic corps stinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kappacon's national animal is the Alaska Pollock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism and Buddhism.

Kappacon is ranked 212,639th in the world and 9,622nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -221.7 on the Hayek Index.
