The Brotherhood of Comia Noracon is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Overseer Amulius Flavus with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.25 billion Comia Noraconians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temple Prime. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Comia Noraconian economy, worth a remarkable 1,891 trillion Drachimas 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 260,916 Drachimas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, students spend the school year learning how great the education system is, internal strife within the Red Bloc crumbles in the face of fiery rhetoric, and the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Comia Noracon's national animal is the Emperor Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Comia Noracon is ranked 67,912th in the world and 1,885th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,489.8 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
