Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Clerical Council X with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, triple-decker prams, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.279 billion Fyrdowsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, 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 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Fyrdowsian economy, worth 118 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 8,938 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. 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 10th in The East Pacific and 351st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 71 on the Enoch Index.
