The Federated Military Republic of El Facil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Field Marshal Jusuchin with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 28.686 billion El Facilians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Iserlohn. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient El Facilian economy, worth a remarkable 6,743 trillion Federal Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,090 Federal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, El Facil's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. El Facil's national animal is the Thorn Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

El Facil is ranked 2,549th in the world and 40th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 186,357.29 Standard Monetary Units.
