The Mother Trucker of San Cannabis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joe Canada with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.136 billion San Cannibites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McMoney. The average income tax rate is 67.0%.

The all-consuming San Cannabisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,331 trillion Metallicas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,701 Metallicas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Cannabis's national animal is the Marijuanna Leaf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Casholism.

San Cannabis is ranked 18,366th in the world and 8th in Hippy Haven for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
