The Grand Duchy of Kongers is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Edward IXXX with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.091 billion Kongersians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Southminster. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kongersian economy, worth 181 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,966 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Kongersian grocery store, newspapers are running a front-page picture of Edward IXXX holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, and police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kongers's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Logic.

Kongers is ranked 23,578th in the world and 25th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,276.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
