Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Farus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chate Hineston with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.235 billion Farusians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, 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 14.6%.

The all-consuming Farusian economy, worth 590 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 81,571 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,393 per year while the poor average 16,233, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is a major problem. 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 22nd in The Kingdom of Denmark and 112,431st in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -107 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
