Canazuela is a medium sized, highly developed, and ancient nation at 805 days old with citizens primarily of Celtic ethnicity whose religion is Christianity. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Canazuela work diligently to produce Sugar and Uranium as tradable resources for their nation. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. The military of Canazuela has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Canazuela allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Canazuela believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Canazuela will not make deals with another country that has a poor history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
