The Land of Farahdeen is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Vinihn Hoigar with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.811 billion Vahinans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Satav. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vahinan economy, worth 638 trillion pebbles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 132,665 pebbles, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The military's primary weapons are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and a fanatical devotion to Sohla, President Vinihn Hoigar's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and the impoverished sick hang around outside golf clubs to beg for funding for healthcare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Farahdeen's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sohla.

Farahdeen is ranked 166,524th in the world and 36th in Greater Olympus for Most Secular, with 7.15 Atheism Rate.
