The Mad Hat Vendor of Comfed is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Paramount Pig with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.13 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The powerhouse Comfedian economy, worth 872 trillion Goldblenns 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, Information Technology, 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 an amazing 278,704 Goldblenns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, Maths Professor Barbie is the most popular toy for boys and girls alike, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. 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 6,737th in the world and 158th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,949.78 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
