The Democratic States of Connotar is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 758 million Connotarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Kochina. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Connotarian economy, worth 49.3 trillion Keytes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 64,981 Keytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Connotar, and smoking is banned in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Connotar's national animal is the Extinct Connotarian Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Connotar is ranked 137,465th in the world and 77th in RGBN for Most Extreme, scoring 15.52 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
