The Kingdom of Coning is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jean Paul with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.357 billion Coningians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthage. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Coningian economy, worth 154 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,036 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coning's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Coning is ranked 150,055th in the world and 6,052nd in Osiris for Most Devout, with 5.9 Prayers Per Hour.
