OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Fantoche is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Andy Rohn with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.571 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orléans. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Basket Weaving.

Religious education is a new government priority, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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.

Fantoche is ranked 4,916th in The North Pacific and 117,363rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 11 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
