The Military Base of CanadianMapleSyrup is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by My General with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.081 billion Armed Canadians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Militaristic Montreal. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Armed Canadian economy, worth 250 trillion Maple Syrup Cans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,273 Maple Syrup Cans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, and Armed Canadian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CanadianMapleSyrup's national animal is the Armed Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Canadian Cult.

CanadianMapleSyrup is ranked 11,031st in the world and 26th in Enadia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 92.79 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
