The Free Land of Codalonia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The humorless population of 320 million Codalonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sahara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The all-consuming Codalonian economy, worth 30.5 trillion Codalonian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,369 Codalonian dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, Codalonian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Codalonia's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Codalonia is ranked 47,721st in the world and 1,558th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,300.49 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
