The New Comfedian Empire of Comfed is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Empress Cassandra Blandina with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 937 million Comfedians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 90.7%.

The Comfedian economy, worth 92.8 trillion wandas 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 99,013 wandas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, nine out of ten citizens of Comfed answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, euthanasia is illegal, and petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through Empress Cassandra Blandina's window to draw attention to their issues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comfed's national animal is the mantis shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Comfed is ranked 212,676th in the world and 9,627th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -206.66 on the Hayek Index.
