The Benevolent Dictatorship of Canterburie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Blind Paladin with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 36.837 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, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. 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 16,513 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 448,290 Braille dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, belief that Blind Paladin is a lizard-person from outer space has reached an all-time high, and attempted suicide is punishable by public hanging. 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 260,571st in the world and 232nd in Capitalist Paradise for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.3 bananas ingested per day.
