The Democratic People's Republic of Far Tholk is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.949 billion Far Tholkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Far Tholk City. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Far Tholkian economy, worth 928 trillion gold pieces a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,754 gold pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Imitation is the sincerest form of felony, parents dread their examinations more than their children, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Far Tholk's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Far Tholk is ranked 135,637th in the world and 33rd in The Great Experiment for Largest Black Market, with 198 billion Standard Monetary Units.
