The Department of Lost Nights of Consular is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Eli Onasi with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.305 billion Conites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Administration and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vigil. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Conite economy, worth a remarkable 2,090 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,911 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Eli Onasi's desk, playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Consular's national animal is the Atlantic Sailfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Antitheism.

Consular is ranked 159,438th in the world and 18th in Astyria for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
