The Holy Capitalist Green States of Caninope is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Overlord Opie with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 23.679 billion Caninopeans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookie City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Caninopean economy, worth a remarkable 7,131 trillion dellins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 301,189 dellins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,782,553 per year while the poor average 3,203, a ratio of 868 to 1.

All tariffs have been abolished, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million dellin battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Caninope's national animal is the German Sheperd, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Opieism.

Caninope is ranked 21,930th in the world and 1,183rd in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 241.56 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
