The Monarcho-Socialist Federacy of Northern Cantons is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Camdalia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.845 billion Cantonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Üldanars. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norcantorish economy, worth a remarkable 2,167 trillion Ligdenfars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,987 Ligdenfars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Treason is relative, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, Northern Cantons's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is totally unknown. Northern Cantons's national animal is the Northern White Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Cantons is ranked 129,475th in the world and 4,701st in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 579.33 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
