The Sarcasm Tag of Canaltia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jason North with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.025 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 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Canaltian economy, worth a remarkable 1,866 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 232,530 pence, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, Canaltian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment. 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 11,919th in the world and 31st in Forest for Most Armed, with 7.48 Weapons Per Person.
