Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Farus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Nate Johnston with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.084 billion Farusians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geneva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The thriving Farusian economy, worth 597 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 73,859 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 286,722 per year while the poor average 13,024, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Farus has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and Nate Johnston's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Farus's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Farus is ranked 15,022nd in the world and 1st in The Kingdom of Denmark for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 54.29 Whatever.
