The Armed Republic of NeoConcordia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.706 billion NeoConcordians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcosa. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse NeoConcordian economy, worth 673 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,671 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, students everywhere have been despairing after the recent ban on video games, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. NeoConcordia's national animal is the Vorpal Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NeoConcordia is ranked 46,872nd in the world and 1,904th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,921.06 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
