Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Clerical Council X with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 13.923 billion Fyrdowsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, 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 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Fyrdowsian economy, worth 795 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 57,158 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, gambling is outlawed, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Submissio Pacem.

Fyrdowsi is ranked 95th in the world and 2nd in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,811.66 Tourists Per Hour.
