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 renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.892 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 Law & Order and Spirituality 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 4.7%.

The thriving Farusian economy, worth 581 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 73,704 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 286,121 per year while the poor average 12,997, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 12,842nd in the world and 2nd in The Kingdom of Denmark for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,835.21 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
