The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Clerical Council IX with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.151 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 concentrates mainly on 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 96%. 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.

Sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, and calling out of the blue has become taboo. 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 3,395th in The East Pacific and 111,922nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -208.5 Insults Per Minute (net).
