The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.465 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 secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 98%. 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.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. 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 3,776th in The East Pacific and 109,515th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -19 on the Hayek Index.
