Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.481 billion Farendetis are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Farendetian economy, worth an astonishing 10,495 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 488,596 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,757,372 per year while the poor average 97,233, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 29th in the Pacific and 2,274th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 17 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
