The People's Republic of The Lost Canyon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by NinJA Da MiDget with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.859 billion The Lost Canyonians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canyon Underground. The average income tax rate is 53%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism industries.

Spies caught in The Lost Canyon are never heard from again, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, airport security is provided by private companies, and well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. The Lost Canyon's national animal is the wolverines, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the BuffaloCanyon.

The Lost Canyon is ranked 10th in The SOP and 81,311th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -3 Whatever.
