The Grand Duchy of Cania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Cania with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.801 billion Canians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cania City. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Canian economy, worth a remarkable 1,545 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,421 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

In a fit of passion Lord Cania has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, going on a diet invalidates your passport, childish pranks are no laughing matter, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cania's national animal is the Griffon vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cania is ranked 63,704th in the world and 106th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Average, scoring 40.57 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
