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 anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.092 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cantonese economy, worth a remarkable 1,454 trillion Canton Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 131,097 Canton Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

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 23,810th in the world and 1,318th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.89 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
