The Empire of Northcanadia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Shail Patel with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.305 billion Northcanadians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of megatropalas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Northcanadian economy, worth a remarkable 4,099 trillion Monies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 308,142 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, airport security is provided by private companies, and concussed Koala Bearball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Northcanadia's national animal is the Koala Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northcanadia is ranked 1,004th in the world and 59th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,892.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
