The Confederation of Canovium is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Rienzi with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.771 billion Canovians 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 large, corrupt government 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 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Canoviumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,286 trillion Credits a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,690 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Canovium is ranked 238,862nd in the world and 1,177th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -20.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
