The Dictatorship of CainBang is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its national health service, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 428 million CainBangians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 36.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient CainBangian economy, worth 16.8 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,278 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Water fights now end with thousands dead, the full title of Hon Leader Vcte Mgve MF DCLM GCCE runs to several pages, gossip magazines have been replaced by mask catalogs, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CainBang's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

CainBang is ranked 204,471st in the world and 7,375th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 52,568 Standard Monetary Units.
