The Oceanic Republic of Comfed is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 665 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Comfedian economy, worth 41.9 trillion wandas 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 a large, well-organized, 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 63,020 wandas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Comfedians any less frightened, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. 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 mantis shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Comfed is ranked 18,245th in the world and 842nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,469.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
