The Federation of Greater Covenantland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.85 billion Greater Covenantlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Covenantdia. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Greater Covenantlandian economy, worth 238 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,903 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Covenantland's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Covenantland is ranked 12,667th in the world and 410th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 23.5 Bank.
