Location: the Rejected Realms

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Holy Ottoman Empire of Cannicat is a huge, safe nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 752 million Cannicatians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cannicatian economy, worth 82.9 trillion Dinas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 110,217 Dinas, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls, the government pours millions of Dinas into rehabilitation programs annually, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cannicat's national animal is the Greater spotted eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cannicat is ranked 16,798th in the world and 330th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 85.81 on the Human Development Index.
