The Fantastic Field Marshal of Ever-Wandering Souls is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.528 billion Survivors have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctuary. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse a Survivor economy, worth a remarkable 1,188 trillion Tales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 103,060 Tales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, adults hang around outside comic stores to ask kids to go and buy magazines for them, autocrats are persona non grata, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ever-Wandering Souls's national animal is the Mongrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ever-Wandering Souls is ranked 79,501st in the world and 169th in The Black Hawks for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.67 on the Rand Index.
