|Animal||Wild Will Smith|
The People's Republic of Canock is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 754 million Canockians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Headlightfluid. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Canockian economy, worth 43.8 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 58,038 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Canockian emissions at all, and editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canock's national animal is the Wild Will Smith.
