The Republic of Canovium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rienzi with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.037 billion Canovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shenandoah. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Canoviumian economy, worth 981 trillion Credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 108,606 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, police frequently raid drugstores in search of contraband bottles of New Spice aftershave, and consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovium's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
