The Monarcho-Socialist Federacy of Northern Cantons is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Camdalia with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.072 billion Cantonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Administration, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Üldanars. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norcantorish economy, worth a remarkable 1,787 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, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 177,487 Ligdenfars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and they say that Cantonians made a dessert and called it peace. 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 24,528th in the world and 302nd in Balder for Most Stationary, with 547.95244792132 Days.
