The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.479 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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 98%. 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.

Tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, children are regularly married to each other to secure business deals between families, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and the populace lives in fear of painful execution for minor offences. 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 3,573rd in The East Pacific and 106,367th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 20 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
