Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Farus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chate Hinestone with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.256 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, although Spirituality and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geneva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The powerhouse Farusian economy, worth 617 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,789 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,462 per year while the poor average 13,105, a ratio of 22.2 to 1.

Farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. 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 118,766th in the world and 8th in The Kingdom of Denmark for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 480.14 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
