The Iron Fist Oceanic Republic of Comfed is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 682 million 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Comfedian economy, worth 47.3 trillion wandas 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 a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 69,283 wandas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Comfed at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, babysitters are a thing of the past, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. 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.

Comfed is ranked 202,659th in the world and 8,910th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
