The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 10.242 billion Fyrdowsians 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 is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 97%. 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.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, soldiers are equipped with multi-million deenar battlesuits, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. 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 206th in The East Pacific and 11,226th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 25 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
