The Septentrionalis Pacificus of Comfed is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ferdinand Natapaz with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.075 billion 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 Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Comfedian economy, worth a remarkable 2,177 trillion poids 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 358,453 poids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, organ donation rates have hit a new low, and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. 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, and its national religion is Ycarcotuastism.

Comfed is ranked 221,690th in the world and 8,410th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.06 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
