The Most Serene Republic of Concentus is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Concertmaster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.429 billion Concentians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Concordia. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concentian economy, worth 271 trillion Lyras a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,583 Lyras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, nine out of ten citizens of Concentus answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Concentus's national animal is the Songbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Concentus is ranked 224,966th in the world and 7,910th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.38 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
