The State of Japan of Canovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Akihito with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.111 billion Japanese 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 Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 2,225 trillion Japanese Yen 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 183,726 Japanese Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, billions of Japanese Yen are spent to take high-quality photos of the Carp Nebula, every day's an auto-de-fé day, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovia's national animal is the Carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Shinto 神道.

Canovia is ranked 167,731st in the world and 182nd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Fattest Citizens, with 4.11 Obesity Rate.
