The Republic of Concordare is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Consul with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.348 billion Concordarans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caelaurum. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concordaran economy, worth a remarkable 4,564 trillion Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,307 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Concordare's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Concordare is ranked 6,459th in the world and 9th in Union of Christian Nations for Lowest Crime Rates, with 102.36 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
