The Holy Ottoman Empire of Cannicat is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 730 million Cannicatians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cannicatian economy, worth 79.1 trillion Dinas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,383 Dinas, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Cannicat successfully hosted the the Rejected Realms Olympics, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and it's best not to ask what goes into Constantinople Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cannicat's national animal is the Greater spotted eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cannicat is ranked 17,932nd in the world and 383rd in the Rejected Realms for Best Weather, with 163 Meters Of Sunlight.
