The Republic of Contani is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 430 million Contanians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix City. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Contanian economy, worth 46.6 trillion phoenixeses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,305 phoenixeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, Contanians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and being dead no longer has any benefits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Contani's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Contani is ranked 28,569th in the world and 1,304th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,414.21 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
