The New Comfedian Empire of Comfed is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Cassandra Blandina with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 911 million Comfedians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okataron. The average income tax rate is 90.4%.

The Comfedian economy, worth 85.3 trillion shelboes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 93,611 shelboes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, jaywalking will put an end to a family tree, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comfed's national animal is the grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Comfed is ranked 18,667th in the world and 1,004th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,405.76 Tourists Per Hour.
