The Sarcasm Tag of Canaltia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jason North with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.63 billion Canaltians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bondiclav. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Canaltian economy, worth a remarkable 1,751 trillion pence a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 229,533 pence, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out you can teach cats new tricks, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, populations of two-headed hawks have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime is totally unknown. Canaltia's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is pointless.

Canaltia is ranked 23,936th in the world and 62nd in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 290,279 Standard Monetary Units.
