The People's Republic of Conk4 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, devout population of 235 million Conk4ians 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 prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Administration, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 35.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Conk4ian economy, worth 8.90 trillion Conks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 37,886 Conks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and billions of Conks are being poured into a space program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conk4's national animal is the Conk.

Conk4 is ranked 123,743rd in the world and 3,541st in the Rejected Realms for Most Beautiful Environments, with 523.1 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
