The Republic of Contardon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by William Walker with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.793 billion Contardonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 19.1%.

The powerhouse Contardonian economy, worth 402 trillion Dollers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,041 Dollers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, the Contardon Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, a paperwork error has naval privateers being directed to attack land-locked nations, and Contardonian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Contardon's national animal is the Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Contardon is ranked 36,377th in the world and 1,240th in Balder for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,808.93 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
