The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.922 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 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 95%. 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.

Women who display their ankles are shunned by society, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. 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 3,352nd in The East Pacific and 110,403rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -301 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
