The Kingdom of Cainesland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.585 billion Caineslandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cainesland City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Caineslandian economy, worth 843 trillion gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 98,200 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Penal labor is a de facto death sentence, military spending is on the increase, the education system is famed for its taxing exams, and an entourage of camarillas follow the royals around day and night. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cainesland's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Cainesland is ranked 179,778th in the world and 5,680th in Balder for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -26.42 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
