The Union of Denmark-Norway of Canovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jonas Gahr StÝre with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.529 billion Dano-Norwegians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Copenhagen and Oslo. The average income tax rate is 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dano-Norwegian economy, worth a remarkable 2,671 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,885 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Dano-Norwegian selfishness. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovia's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Denmark-Norway.

Canovia is ranked 165,653rd in the world and 259th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Extreme, scoring 10.04 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
