The Confederation of Concordia and Galveston is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Agnes with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.929 billion Kalverions 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkintown. The average income tax rate is 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kalverion economy, worth 766 trillion Kalverion Pénzycks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,478 Kalverion Pénzycks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, only men may wear the crown of Concordia and Galveston, and human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Concordia and Galveston's national animal is the Salvatore Hills Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Concordia and Galveston is ranked 225,123rd in the world and 23rd in League of Allied Nations for Rudest Citizens, with 14.91 Insults Per Minute.
