The Armed Republic of NeoConcordia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.604 billion NeoConcordians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcosa. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse NeoConcordian economy, worth 224 trillion credits 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, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 139,998 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NeoConcordia's national animal is the Vorpal Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NeoConcordia is ranked 15,990th in the world and 375th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 211 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
