The Republic of Conasta is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its digital currency, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.429 billion Conastans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 77.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Conastan economy, worth 170 trillion Blood tokens a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,455 Blood tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's children are known for being even more apathetic and cynical than their parents, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conasta's national animal is the Hell hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Conasta is ranked 37,067th in the world and 101st in Thaecia for Most Cultured, scoring 71 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
