The Monarcho-Socialist Federacy of Northern Cantons is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Camdalia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.895 billion Cantonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Üldanars. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norcantorish economy, worth a remarkable 1,725 trillion Ligdenfars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 174,369 Ligdenfars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and the diplomatic corps stinks. Crime is totally unknown. Northern Cantons's national animal is the Northern White Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Cantons is ranked 2,795th in the world and 101st in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 95.42 on the Human Development Index.
