Synonyms that work in this sentence?
Canada should abandon its (unbeneficial) peaceful customs, have the ability to invade weaker nations, slaughter innocent citizens, and gain rights to all of their valuable resources; in turn, this would 'augment the country's economy.'
I'm just wondering what better word I can use when I want to state that Canada's peaceful customs are unbeneficial/useless/unproductive.
I also want to know whether 'Augment the country's economy.' makes sense.

In place of unbeneficial, you could use "detrimental"; it's possibly a bit stronger word and actually implies that its peaceful customs hinder progress.
You could, as well, say "boost" the country's economy.
"supplement" the country's economy.
Your phrase is fine as well though.

harmful, destructive, deconstructive
if augment doesn't sound right to you, you can always say "strenghten"
