The Grand Duchy of Cannystan is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 775 million Cannystanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fräiheetberg. The average income tax rate is 20.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Cannystanian economy, worth 55.0 trillion Canny Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is 70,940 Canny Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
A girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cannystan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
