The Canine Race

The Imperial Canine Empire of The Canine Race is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sekhent Itashkakh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.494 billion Canines are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khanisia'dakida. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Canine economy, worth 318 trillion Claws a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,625 Claws, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, and thrift shops are closing their doors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Canine Race's national animal is the Canine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Canine Way.

The Canine Race is ranked 211,776th in the world and 9,120th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 290.17 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
