The Benevolent Dictatorship of Canterburie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Blind Paladin with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 34.246 billion Canterburieans 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 minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maranatha. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Canterburiean economy, worth an astonishing 14,837 trillion Braille dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 433,252 Braille dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lumberjacks only use certified eco-friendly chainsaws, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Canterburie's national animal is the Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Canterburie is ranked 243,655th in the world and 304th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Secular, with 0.64 Atheism Rate.
