The Artmongers of Cannonfoder is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lon Chaney with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.879 billion Cannonfoderians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ambush. The average income tax rate is 48.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cannonfoderian economy, worth 300 trillion shots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 159,727 shots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cannonfoder's national animal is the herring gull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Scam.

Cannonfoder is ranked 154,217th in the world and 18th in Nowthappenin for Largest Black Market, with 118 billion Standard Monetary Units.
