The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.398 billion Farendetis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Farendetian economy, worth a remarkable 9,840 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 482,417 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,680,923 per year while the poor average 100,803, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

The number of children one can have is restricted by law, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Farendet's national animal is the beetle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Farendet is ranked 5th in the Pacific and 186th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 594 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
