The People's Republic of The Lost Canyon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by NinJA Da MiDget with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.682 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 61%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism industries.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. 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 5th in The SOP and 16,740th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 17 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
