The Republic of Camante is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Blumfeld with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.516 billion Camantians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raza. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Camantean economy, worth 756 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 215,236 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,201,947 per year while the poor average 19,203, a ratio of 62.6 to 1.

Criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and President Blumfeld's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Camante's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult of the Everlasting Republic.

Camante is ranked 5,210th in the world and 134th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 215,236.71 Standard Monetary Units.
