Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: The North Pacific



Population254 million


The Republic of Contani is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 254 million Contanians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Contanian economy, worth 23.7 trillion Fenixes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,211 Fenixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Fenix sacrifices, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime is totally unknown. Contani's national animal is the Fenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Contani is ranked 23,397th in the world and 1,294th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 72.34 Years.
