The Empire of Shin Konton is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chaos De Konton with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and smutty television. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.61 billion Kontonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konton Teito. The average income tax rate is 26.6%.

The all-consuming Shin Kontonian economy, worth 191 trillion Kins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 118,930 Kins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shin Konton's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kontonism.

Shin Konton is ranked 10,858th in the world and 639th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,111.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
