OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.305 billion Farendetians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Public Transport. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is crippling. Farendet's national animal is the beetle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the credit.

Farendet is ranked 3,411th in the Pacific and 111,893rd in the world for Best Weather, with -1,784 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
