The Former Scardino Colony of Fantoccini is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.165 billion Fantoccinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fantoccinian economy, worth 755 trillion lines a year, is dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 57,370 lines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fantoccini's national animal is the puppet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fantoccini is ranked 155,956th in the world and 1,576th in the West Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 7.83 flags saluted per person per day.
