The Empire of Cainengarth the 10th is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.108 billion Cainengarth the 10thians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad Décima. The average income tax rate is 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cainengarth the 10thian economy, worth 733 trillion Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 143,531 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Cainengarth the 10th, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Ciudad Décima make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cainengarth the 10th's national animal is the Black Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cainengarth the 10th is ranked 115,403rd in the world and 103rd in House Elegarth for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,546.7 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
