OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.843 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.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and military spending is on the increase. 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 4,036th in the Pacific and 113,853rd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -448 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
