Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Allied States of Farendet is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.101 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, outspoken government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Farendetian economy, worth an astonishing 10,285 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 487,462 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,598,590 per year while the poor average 111,558, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 5th in the Pacific and 152nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 27 on the Hayek Index.
