The Republic of Cancolastan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Frank Burk with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.637 billion Cancolastanis 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hobart. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cancolastani economy, worth 435 trillion Empire Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 165,032 Empire Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 467,164 per year while the poor average 46,617, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cancolastan's national animal is the Can, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cancolastan is ranked 26,180th in the world and 1st in Anglospheric Empire for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,978.6 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
