The Durenzian State of Cadnbaland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Governor de Launay with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.515 billion Cadnbians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cadnbian economy, worth 439 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,975 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Governor de Launay's hair, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Cadnbian Liberator", politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Rainbow Salmonball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cadnbaland's national animal is the Rainbow Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Science.

Cadnbaland is ranked 28,059th in the world and 23rd in Urana Firma for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,940.29 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
