The Union of Capreia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.112 billion Capreians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seatore. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Capreian economy, worth 475 trillion Capreian Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 115,523 Capreian Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBC Governor goes house hunting, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, Seatore has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Capreia's national animal is the Capreian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Capreia is ranked 43,473rd in the world and 69th in The Free Nations Region for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.35 law-abiding acts per hour.
