The Confederacy of Comuni is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Baphomet with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.669 billion Comunians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravensworth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Comunian economy, worth a remarkable 6,571 trillion Hammers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 266,403 Hammers, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comuni's national animal is the Black Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Comuni is ranked 204,777th in the world and 51st in Alvaria for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -34.64 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
