The United Imperial State of Cape Canavral is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by HIRH Emperor-King Lucius with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 8.06 billion Capers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Kapstadt. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Caper economy, worth a remarkable 1,171 trillion Chronos a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 145,330 Chronos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, and public toilets are famed for their rear entries. 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 6,454th in the world and 17th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 26 valid endorsements.
