The Holy Empire of Fanthonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by J with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, conspicuous electricity pylons, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.306 billion Fanthonians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fanthonia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Fanthonian economy, worth 226 trillion Fans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 173,323 Fans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 880,657 per year while the poor average 18,874, a ratio of 46.7 to 1.

Foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Fanthonia, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Fanthonia City, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Hawkdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fanthonia's national animal is the Hawk, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Fanthonity.

Fanthonia is ranked 255,917th in the world and 11,157th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -35 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
