The Federation of The Conclave is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Bateman with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.332 billion Conclavites 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamilton. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Conclavean economy, worth a remarkable 2,690 trillion Gold Royals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 218,190 Gold Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Conclave's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding The Conclave, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Conclave's national animal is the Peregrin Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

The Conclave is ranked 203,734th in the world and 10th in The New Inquisition for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 3.72 Effective Tax Rate.
