The Chocolate Chip Cookie of Comfed is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shogun with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, triple-decker prams, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.141 billion Comfedians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The powerhouse Comfedian economy, worth 502 trillion Golden Biscuits 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. 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 amazing 234,729 Golden Biscuits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, war criminals are given full state funerals, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comfed's national animal is the mantis shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Authoritarianizm.

Comfed is ranked 61,546th in the world and 2,232nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,072.74 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
