The Sarcasm Tag of Canaltia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jason North with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.173 billion Canaltians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondiclav. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Canaltian economy, worth a remarkable 1,422 trillion pence a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 230,462 pence, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-pence treacle machine, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime is totally unknown. Canaltia's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is pointless.

Canaltia is ranked 1,574th in the world and 25th in Forest for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.74 Effective Tax Rate.
