The Republic of Concordare is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Consul with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.371 billion Concordarans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caelaurum. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concordaran economy, worth a remarkable 4,578 trillion Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,761 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, group hugs break out during floor votes, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Concordaran Embarrassments, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Concordare's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Concordare is ranked 117,530th in the world and 49th in Union of Christian Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,015.94 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
