The Commonwealth of Fantoche is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Andy Rohn with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.766 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orléans. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Basket Weaving and Gambling.
People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fantoche's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Ducat.
