Canning is a growing, developing, and maturing nation at 43 days old with citizens primarily of Caucasian ethnicity whose religion is Shinto. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Canning work diligently to produce Lumber and Gold as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. Canning is currently researching nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but believes nuclear weapons should be banned. The military of Canning has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Canning allows its citizens to openly protest their government, even if it means violence. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Canning 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. Canning will not make deals with another country that has a history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
The History of CanningEdit
The nation of Canning was founded on the 29th of September, 2009. Jon of Canning (hereon referred to as JoC), was (re)told about Cyber Nations by his good IRL friend Navarre, ruler of Kongaria. JoC joined, and would never regret it. JoC originally had a Hinduist Monarchy in place, as recommended by Navarre, but on the 20th of October 2009, the people of Canning would get tired of it, and would become Communist Christians. *insert awesome smiley* But on November 7, 2009, Canning would go back to a Monarchy, but have a Shintoist belief. A day after he joined Cyber Nations, JoC joined the alliance R&R, which would be another intelligent move. It is worth noting that he considered joining Invicta as well as iFOK.
Canning Has a long history of Getting ill gotten funds incorrectly. Often when doing tech deals (up to one time on record) It has gone as far as to buy 100 tech at once. It also likes making many comments about the personal life of another player "navarre" on iFOKs boards about how he is missing school for the flu.
