The One True Way of Canaveran Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Canaver with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.304 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, 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 67.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Canaveran Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,531 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 209,630 souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The law says that all serviles are created equal — no matter how they were created, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay. 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 48,204th in the world and 1,365th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 27.07 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
