The Empire of Kanadorika is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eđvarđ Grímólfsson with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.599 billion Kanadorikans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venesia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.3%.

The all-consuming Kanadorikan economy, worth a remarkable 1,854 trillion ᚠ Krónas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,058 ᚠ Krónas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 359,671 per year while the poor average 35,891, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kanadorika's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kanadorika is ranked 248,473rd in the world and 11th in Etharia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -10.25 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
