The Empire of Canthos is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Cantoine with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 838 million Canthosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cantberra. The average income tax rate is 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Canthosian economy, worth 110 trillion ants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,290 ants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, and dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Canthos's national animal is the anteater, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Canthos is ranked 181,635th in the world and 2,042nd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 7.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
