Planet Earth
Capital Shiruta

Formerly ruled by the metahuman Black Adam, who had been king once before in the age of the pharaohs and deposed the then-dominant military dictatorship in 2003 to enormous public support, Kahndaq started World War III when Black Adam retaliated to the assassination of his wife and adoptive son by destroying the neighbouring country of Bialya, effectively killing the entire population. As with many countries in the Middle East, limited nuclear war ravaged it in the chaos that followed and the country remains a place of much suffering. The capital city of Shiruta has a monument dedicated to Black Adam's "heroism", a highly controversial landmark.
