The Confederation of Canovium is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rienzi with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.719 billion Canovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenandoah. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Canoviumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,301 trillion Credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,320 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, Canovians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Canovium will pay them to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.
