The Federation of Old South Canadia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 539 million Canoodles 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The OSC economy, worth 35.1 trillion Stoats 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 65,159 Stoats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old South Canadia's national animal is the Stoat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Old South Canadia is ranked 185,024th in the world and 52nd in Nova Historiae for Most Avoided, scoring 0.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
