The Federation of The Conda is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 584 million Condans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goose City. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Condan economy, worth 30.9 trillion Anns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 52,861 Anns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, Condan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Conda's national animal is the Goose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Conda is ranked 72,111th in the world and 397th in Europe for Most Average, scoring 42.22 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
