Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Clerical Council X with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, compulsory vegetarianism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.173 billion Fyrdowsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Fyrdowsian economy, worth 85.6 trillion deenars a year, is driven entirely by government activity. 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 7,030 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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, and its national religion is Submissio Pacem.

Fyrdowsi is ranked 249th in The East Pacific and 9,608th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 73 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
