The One True Way of Canaveran Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Canaver with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.463 billion serviles are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Administration, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parasanti. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Canaveran Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,893 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 223,758 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, end-of-year production reports state that the revolution is really going with a bang, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canaveran Empire's national animal is the Death Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult of the Overlord.

Canaveran Empire is ranked 56,922nd in the world and 2,899th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,146.13 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
