The Mother Trucker of San Cannabis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Joe Canada with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.86 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 Education, Law & Order, 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 1,391 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 77,912 Metallicas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, and judicial torture is outsourced overseas. 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 37,387th in the world and 3rd in Hippy Haven for Most Average, scoring 46.39 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
