The Imperial State of Cape Canavral is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor-King Julius with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.644 billion Capers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuststęd. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Caper economy, worth 747 trillion Chronos a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,500 Chronos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cape Canavral's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cape Canavral is ranked 204,946th in the world and 264th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.48 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
