The Republic of Concordare is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Consul with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.395 billion Concordarans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caelaurum. The average income tax rate is 36.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concordaran economy, worth a remarkable 4,605 trillion Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 225,810 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The comic book series 'The Consul and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, residents firmly believe there is no spoon (Concordare has found 4 easter eggs), artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Concordare's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Concordare is ranked 4,534th in the world and 6th in Union of Christian Nations for Highest Average Incomes, with 225,810.98 Standard Monetary Units.
