The Democratic Republic of Conteria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ganu with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.301 billion Conterians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Capitol. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Conterian economy, worth 310 trillion Conteses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,523 Conteses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Straitjackets are a common religious garb, being President Ganu has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conteria's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Conteria is ranked 21,892nd in the world and 1,073rd in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 9.87 bananas ingested per day.
