The Lost Holy Land of Cantfinditonamapistan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.154 billion Cantfinditonamapistanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cantfinditonamapistan City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Soda Sales industries.

Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cantfinditonamapistan's national animal is the Spotted Tree Squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its currency is the Currency.

Cantfinditonamapistan is ranked 41st in the Pacific and 2,485th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6 on the Hayek Index.
