The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.509 billion Fyrdowsians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic individuals keep a keen eye out for any attempt to organize such a thing, and ruthlessly crush it. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. Income tax is unheard of. 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.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", and betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 3,572nd in The East Pacific and 100,884th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 0 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
