The Confederacy of Cansions is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 420 million Cansionsians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Melbourne. The average income tax rate is 19.2%.

The all-consuming Cansionsian economy, worth 49.1 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 116,849 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cansions's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cansions is ranked 48,301st in the world and 77th in The Free Nations Region for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.22 on the Rand Index.
