The Empire of Compli is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.526 billion Complians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Complian economy, worth 289 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,476 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love Leader, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Compli's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Compli is ranked 91,038th in the world and 1,160th in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 2.53 billion Capita.
