H/T the discussion boards over at Brain Terminal.
Canada spends less than $265 per capita in military spending (the worst among major NATO members, with the average being $600 and the US spending over $1000). They make up for it in health care, which they will need when their heinies get shot up.
Today, the Canadian Navy has only 34 ships (compared to the 300 they had at the end of WWII), 22 of which still need a good breeze to move them.
Further Canadian Military ASSets consist of 140 aircraft (rubber-band powered), and 59,000 personnel (mostly armed with shovels and Range-Rider BB Guns).
Canada has no strategic airlift capacity (tanks and vehicles must be disassembled to be transported overseas!) Canada relies on American troops to move theirs around during domestic emergencies.
Of the top 25 countries that have active military forces, Canada does not even rank. This puts them behind such powerhouses like Eritrea, Morocco, and Myanmar. This is to be attributed to Canada's French heritage.
As a related sidenote, an animal closely tied with France is the Rossignol, or rooster, which, as you know, is a male chicken.
They are, however, responsible for the development of our new camouflage schemes. That means they'll be really good at hiding when the balloon goes up.
The only nation with more surface area than Canada is Russia. So you have this huge land mass with a military 27 times smaller than ours.
Oh Canada! We stand on guard for thee!
That's the U.S. singing, btw, not the Canadian Armed Forces.
