Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Duchy of Faramount is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.529 billion Faramanians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lacomopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Faramanian economy, worth 963 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 174,224 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and all 'unconventional' weaponry has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Faramount's national animal is the Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Faramount is ranked 23,859th in the world and 27th in Greater Ixnay for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 11,389.53 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
