The United Imperial Dominions of Canton Empire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Justinian I of Piedmont with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 17.938 billion Cantonese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canton. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cantonese economy, worth a remarkable 2,314 trillion Canton Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,015 Canton Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supervisors in Canton Empire commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canton Empire's national animal is the Byzantine Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of the One True God.

Canton Empire is ranked 207,547th in the world and 34th in Saint Osmund for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -5.48 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
