The Quaker Conglomerate of Cannula is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Richard Cheese Cleese with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.645 billion Quakers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cannulan economy, worth a remarkable 1,725 trillion Oats a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,907 Oats, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Being Richard Cheese Cleese has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and children seem to be getting better at lying these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cannula's national animal is the Quaker man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Quakerism.

Cannula is ranked 27,589th in the world and 6th in Westfalen Westphalia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,445.52 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
