OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.813 billion Farendetis 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 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.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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 2,029th in the Pacific and 61,901st in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 55 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
