Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Clerical Council X with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 14.816 billion Fyrdowsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The large but stagnant Fyrdowsian economy, worth 684 trillion deenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,180 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fyrdowsi's national animal is the camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Submissio Pacem.

Fyrdowsi is ranked 95,749th in the world and 7,248th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 62.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
