The Online Courses of Combustivel Fossil is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Professor Olavão with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.574 billion Fósseis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Embundas Artes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.5%.

The very strong Fóssil economy, worth 393 trillion Farsas a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,539 Farsas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 390,330 per year while the poor average 6,422, a ratio of 60.8 to 1.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Combustivel Fossil's national animal is the Cu da sua Mãe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Olavismo.

Combustivel Fossil is ranked 19,276th in the world and 1st in Cookerzerkhistan for Largest Black Market, with 23.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
