The Republic of Camante is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Prescott with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.915 billion Camantians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caman. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Camantean economy, worth 325 trillion Camantian Shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 170,144 Camantian Shekels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,141 per year while the poor average 21,820, a ratio of 36.4 to 1.

Centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again, the police double as repo men, President Prescott's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and President Prescott's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Caman generates millions of views. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Camante's national animal is the Red-Haired Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Camante is ranked 6,154th in the world and 176th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 479.37 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
