The Federation of The Conclave is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Bateman with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.896 billion Conclavites 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamilton. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Conclavean economy, worth a remarkable 1,976 trillion Gold Royals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 199,751 Gold Royals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Conclave's national animal is the Peregrin Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Conclave is ranked 14,083rd in the world and 4th in The New Inquisition for Most Developed, scoring 82.13 on the Human Development Index.
