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 notable for its lack of airports, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 14.3 billion Fyrdowsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 83.8%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Fyrdowsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,073 trillion deenars a year, is driven almost 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 75,078 deenars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as Fyrdowsi's House of Parliament, Fyrdowsi's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, and all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Submissio Pacem.

Fyrdowsi is ranked 33,152nd in the world and 820th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 63.45 on the Human Development Index.
