The Empire of Fengate is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Emperor David I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.107 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fengate City. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and the government spends millions of fens every year prosecuting spammers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fengate's national animal is the eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the fen.
