OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.514 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.

Farendet is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing. 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 10th in the Pacific and 166th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 22 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
