The Corporation of Consergo is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by MrConsergo with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 20.58 billion Consergoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ConsergoCity. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Consergoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,682 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 81,746 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Consergo's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Consergo is ranked 166,761st in the world and 119th in Nederland for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10.86 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
