The Islamic Republic of Consola is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by EnderMascot with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.802 billion Consolians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cona. The average income tax rate is 30.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Consolan economy, worth 180 trillion Consols 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 100,306 Consols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Consola's national animal is the Consolan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Consola is ranked 26,781st in the world and 2nd in Islands Of Enderia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,462.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
