The People's Republic of The Lost Canyon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by NinJA Da MiDget with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.06 billion 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 Defence, Law & Order, 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.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. 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 4th in The SOP and 25,733rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 53 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
