The Republic of Caean is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 564 million Caeanids are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strongfel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The very strong Caeanian economy, worth 34.7 trillion Saters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 61,473 Saters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 203,090 per year while the poor average 13,915, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

A valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', fat-shaming is now public policy, meat-eating is frowned upon, and Caean recently decided against having a capital city. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Caean's national animal is the Kestrel, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Caean is ranked 56,493rd in the world and 28th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 37.91 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
