The Republic of Great Conglomerate is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed population of 701 million Great Conglomerateans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 53.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Great Conglomeratean economy, worth 92.6 trillion Watts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 132,038 Watts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's always rabbit season, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Conglomerate's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Great Conglomerate is ranked 90,266th in the world and 2,598th in the Pacific for Most Average, scoring 39.05 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
