The Nation of Free Workers Confederacy is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Minister-President Memphis Sutton with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 788 million Free Workers 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Comninem. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Free Workers Confederacyian economy, worth 80.4 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,986 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Minister-President Memphis Sutton has just been declared ruler of Free Workers Confederacy in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Workers Confederacy's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Workers Confederacy is ranked 194,482nd in the world and 826th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pro-Market, scoring -89.33 on the Rand Index.
