Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Porcine Republic of Conoga is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Porc Antony with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, pith helmet sales, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.632 billion pigs 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apignon. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient pig economy, worth a remarkable 2,131 trillion reichsporks a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,159 reichsporks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

A lack of funding for new shows has turned television into 24/7 re-runs, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conoga's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Suineaic mysteries.

Conoga is ranked 104,662nd in the world and 15th in Kotturheim for Most Extreme, scoring 12.93 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
