The Gypsy Caravan of Fairskies is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 20.217 billion Fairskiesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Fairskiesian economy, worth 772 trillion pelts a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,218 pelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Fairskies City to enjoy their national art, the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and the Fairskies Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fairskies's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fairskies is ranked 9,943rd in the world and 14th in Taijitu for Largest Black Market, with 85.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
