The Grand Duchy of Cannystan is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 324 million Cannystanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fräiheetberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The very strong Cannystanian economy, worth 23.2 trillion Canny Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 71,618 Canny Francs, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, the government pours millions of Canny Francs into rehabilitation programs annually, Cannystan has designated Fräiheetberg as its capital city, and drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cannystan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cannystan is ranked 86,893rd in the world and 634th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,817.85 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
