The Kingdom of Cantelo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen Isabella de Halloway with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.053 billion Cantelese 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.3%.

The powerhouse Cantelese economy, worth 141 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 68,741 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, and school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cantelo's national animal is the Ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Cantelo is ranked 149,983rd in the world and 7,567th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.9 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
