The Corporate Provinces of The Northern Cansilican State is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Wire Council with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, aversion to nipples, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.558 billion Northern Cansilicans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suscedai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cansilican economy, worth 559 trillion utopias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 157,250 utopias, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 624,955 per year while the poor average 26,686, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

The government is encouraging violence on television, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', this year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Northern Cansilican State's national animal is the Cansilican painted dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of the Four Entities.

The Northern Cansilican State is ranked 42,351st in the world and 15th in Universal Pact for Most Influential, scoring 404 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
