The United Imperial Dominions of Canton Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Justinian I of Piedmont with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12.894 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cantonese economy, worth a remarkable 1,676 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 130,059 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 142,472nd in the world and 7,121st in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.21 Weapons Per Person.
