The Imperial State of Cape Canavral is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor-King Julius with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.804 billion Capers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuststęd. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caper economy, worth 774 trillion Chronos a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,409 Chronos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, billions are being spent on a new island airport, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Caper Liberator". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cape Canavral's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cape Canavral is ranked 7,017th in the world and 32nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Developed, scoring 92.26 on the Human Development Index.
