The Great Technate

The Dominion of The Great Technate is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical population of 341 million Canadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 18.8%.

The Canadian economy, worth 16.4 trillion Canadian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,120 Canadian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, discarded pennies litter the streets, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and the justice of The Great Technate is considered superior to that of other nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Great Technate's national animal is the Hudson Beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Great Technate is ranked 100,408th in the world and 48th in Commonwealth of Geopolitics for Longest Average Lifespans, with 60.42 Years.
