The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 10.328 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 concentrates mainly on 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.

Private law firms are unheard of, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and military spending is on the increase. 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 3,806th in The East Pacific and 113,778th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -304 Dawkins.
