The Union State of Ikhaya of Canovia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by State President De Villiers Graaff with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 20.835 billion Ikhayans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ikhayan economy, worth a remarkable 3,799 trillion Ikhayan Rand 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 common. Average income is an impressive 182,382 Ikhayan Rand, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovia's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Canovia is ranked 312,660th in the world and 448th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26.57 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
