The Armed Republic of NeoConcordia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.121 billion NeoConcordians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcosa. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The all-consuming NeoConcordian economy, worth 341 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 160,898 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as NeoConcordians, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NeoConcordia's national animal is the Vorpal Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NeoConcordia is ranked 6,689th in the world and 178th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,779.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
