The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism. Its compassionate population of 9.324 billion are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, and knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fyrdowsi's national animal is the camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Submissio Pacem, and its currency is the deenar.

Fyrdowsi is ranked 4,542nd in The East Pacific and 123,014th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -107 Whatever.
