The Empire of Canthos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Cantoine with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.021 billion Canthosians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cantberra. The average income tax rate is 32.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Canthosian economy, worth 142 trillion ants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,566 ants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and tourists call Canthosian beach towns "the fine coastline". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Canthos's national animal is the anteater, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Canthos is ranked 124,793rd in the world and 1,228th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 56.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
