The Republic of Canovium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rienzi with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.164 billion Canovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenandoah. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Canoviumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion Credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,981 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
'.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Canoviumian websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and contestants on Canovium's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovium's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
