The Principality of Faraby is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 542 million Farabians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Farabyian economy, worth 16.3 trillion Lire a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,986 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Faraby's national animal is the Arabian oryx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
