The Democratic Republic of The Congo Confederation is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 594 million Congolese are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.5%.

The thriving Congo Confederationian economy, worth 34.6 trillion Turkic Manats a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 58,254 Turkic Manats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 227,109 per year while the poor average 10,201, a ratio of 22.3 to 1.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Congo Confederation's national animal is the Okapi.

The Congo Confederation is ranked 128,783rd in the world and 148th in Greater Middle East for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
