Kania, officially the Christian Republic of Kania, is an sovereign island nation located in the North Atlantic Ocean, off the eastern coast of North America. The country is a federal republic comprised of twelve states and a single federal district which functions as the capital. Kania spans a total of 89,461 square kilometers (34,541 sq mi), and is home to some more than 7.8 million inhabitants as of 2018, the majority of whom are of African-descent. Kania is located off the northeastern coast of Canada, and is within reach of the Danish possession of Greenland in the north. The country consists of some TBD islands, the largest of which being TBD, where 99% of the total population currently resides on a permanent basis. Kania is notable for its history of democratic rights, low corruption, near lack of violent or property crimes, making Kania one of the safest nations in the world to live in. Likewise, Kania is a recognized member of the developed world and a middle power in North America.

Colonized in 1598 by members of the early Alithian movement under the former Anglican minister, Thaddeus Kane, Kania began its early life as a haven for religious freedom and Christian ideals, which formed the foundational bedrock of Kanian culture and society. Seeking refuge from the persecution of the Anglican bishops from the Church of England, and what they regarded as a deep perversion of the Bible by self-interested clergymen and nobles, Kane and his followers departed for North America to establish their own community of worshipers. Over the decades, Kania's strong Christian core and focus on freedom of worship and the right to liberty, made it a center for the abolitionist movement in the Americas, especially given the African heritage of the colony's founder. Freed slaves and runaways flocked to Kania throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, to such a point that nearly half of all individuals of black heritage in British America resided in Kania.

Under the leadership of Thaddeus Kane's descendant Roger Kane, Kania's colonial government successfully petitioned the British government in London for home rule as per an agreement provided for by the Prime Minister Spencer Compton in 1743. Service as a loyal colonial territory ultimately saw the island attain its complete independence in 1756, as a consequence of its involvement in the French and Indian War, where the Kanians contributed greatly to the efforts of the British in blocking the French and their native allies from achieving successes on the battlefield. The Kanians successfully negotiated their independence into the Treaty of Paris, under the guise that their neutrality would help prevent a future conflict between the two region powers, with Kania providing its services as a mediator in future conflicts such the need arise. Leveraging its new role as a neutral power in North America, Kania would advertise itself as a place of trade and industry for all parties seeking freedom away from the mercantilist policies of the colonial powers.

Following its independence, Kania would go on to support the British efforts to stamp out the rebellious American militias fighting for independence in the American Revolutionary War in 1775, seeking as a policy of the Kanian leaders to free American slaves held there. Though it lost the war, such interventions on Kania's part were successful in bringing tens of thousands of black slaves and freedmen to its shores, with most of the black loyalists during the American Revolutionary War settling in Kania over Canada or Sierra Leone. Kania would continue to maintain its anti-slavery stance for the duration of slavery's existence in the Western world, combating the slave trade in West Africa, and providing transportation to Kania for runaway slaves in the American South. All of these efforts would help paint the image of Kania as the defender of liberty for black Africans throughout the globe, and its role as a black mecca during the Industrial Age and onward as move black individuals flocked to the island nation.

Kania would later adopted an stance of neutrality during the first half of the First World War, and it would fully enter the Second World War as a member of the Allies fighting Nazi Germany. Through the Cold War, Kania would remain an active member of the Non-Aligned Movement, and vigorously the Jim Crow laws of the United States, and tyranny of the governments of the newly independent African nations against their own people. In recent years, Kania has been hailed for its remarkable consistency on the moral treatment of individuals; though true to its Christian ideals, it has not embraced the LGBT movement or abortion for women within its borders. Kania has also been criticized for its refusal to adopt certain policies on culture and society, viewing modest dress and behavior as a requirement to be a citizen of the country. In spite of these perceived failings, Kania remains one of the most well-liked nations on the international stage, and a fair and honest party in geopolitics.
