The Democratic Republic of Confete is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, public floggings, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 508 million Confeteans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olinda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Confetean economy, worth 65.9 trillion Reais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 129,648 Reais, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 716,816 per year while the poor average 11,825, a ratio of 60.6 to 1.

Colonial subjects have Confetean culture shoved down their throats, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Confete's national animal is the Peixe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Confete is ranked 6,092nd in the world and 2nd in The Union of Rightwing Nations for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 15 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
