The Grand Federation of Concol is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Wilson Franklin with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 933 million Concoliss 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diderdash. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Concolian economy, worth 83.1 trillion April Queens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,047 April Queens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The comic book series 'Wilson Franklin and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, and Concolinses have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Concol's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Concol is ranked 25,990th in the world and 89th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 78.02 on the Human Development Index.
