The New Lunar Republic of Fantrum is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Luna Nightingale with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.145 billion Fantnites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.
The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the government is avowedly atheist, the Fantrum Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fantrum's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Credit.
