The Fifth Dual Republics of Kanokla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Henri LeValley with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.771 billion Kanoklans 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 large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgetown. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kanoklie economy, worth 416 trillion Ameris a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,191 Ameris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime is totally unknown. Kanokla's national animal is the tumbleweed, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Universal Secularism.

Kanokla is ranked 150,119th in the world and 888th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,096.34 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
