Canada is the second-biggest country in the world. It was invaded by the Eastern Union under the control of Thorvald's old avatars in DYOS 10. It was also invaded by Pontbridge, then Taillenia and the Republic of Coruscant in DYOS 5 when the world was divided up among the DYOS'ers.

Canada's chief exports are beer and hockey players. According to some particularly self-assured earthworms[1], Canada is 50% trees, 50% rocks, and 50% water (40% of which is trapped in the icecap, so it's not a viable trading commodity). Canadians are some of the politest people in the world and are very self-conscious about their international image.[2] Canadian domestic politics, in contrast, revolve around the single question of who will cut taxes the most while kissing up to Québec the least.

Most of Canada's urban centres are concentrated in the south of the country, along the American border.[3] The population density falls sharply outside of south-eastern Ontario, and British people frequently become frightened after driving for two hours without passing through another settlement. Like all civilized former colonies, Canada provides special reservation for all its native populations save the Inuit, who have no set boundaries imposed on established for them. This is mainly because until the discovery of petroleum, there wasn't any useful land for the imperialists to steal.[4]

Notes

  1. You might even call them, Arrogant Worms
  2. This compensates for the fact that their leaders are not.
  3. A practice continued since the 'Nam draft-dodging
  4. Work is currently underway to literally melt the Inuit territory out from underneath them.
