Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Faramount is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mateo Terusio with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.59 billion Faramanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lacomopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Faramanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,133 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 172,052 Imperial Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 599,495 per year while the poor average 35,951, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Prime Minister Mateo Terusio performing the Full-Monty are selling out, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious 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, and its national religion is Levantine Catholicism.

Faramount is ranked 129,173rd in the world and 120th in Greater Ixnay for Most Authoritarian, with 0.02 Stalins.
