The United States of Conservadoria is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, feral children, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 907 million Conservadores are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Public Transport is also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of McCrudden Economic Estates. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Conservadore economy, worth 101 trillion Cruddens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,082 Cruddens, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,011,660 per year while the poor average 1,509, a ratio of 670 to 1.

Weather reports simply advise Conservadores to 'look outside', according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, the only position a woman can hold is baby-maker, and most academic research has ground to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Conservadoria's national animal is the Corporate Porcupine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Conservadoria is ranked 106,969th in the world and 3,701st in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 17.47 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
