The Republic of Contani is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 570 million Contanians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix City. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Contanian economy, worth 67.2 trillion phoenixeses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,876 phoenixeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and the children of Contani are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Contani's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Contani is ranked 106,915th in the world and 5,630th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 62 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
