The Gweriniaeth of Canovium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Glyndŵr with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.587 billion Canovas 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maes-teg. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Canoviumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,149 trillion Credyds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,851 Credyds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, and prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovium's national animal is the Ddraig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cristnogaeth.

Canovium is ranked 8,273rd in the world and 136th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 54.58 Bank.
