The Empire of Conquay is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 800 million Conquayians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 57.1%.

The strong Conquayian economy, worth 47.7 trillion Quaris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 59,572 Quaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, Conquayian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and they say that Conquayians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conquay's national animal is the Ant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Conquay is ranked 62,904th in the world and 2nd in small strength for Most Pro-Market, scoring 50.78 on the Rand Index.
