The Republic of Faramount is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Matthew Terrus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.264 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, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faramount City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Faramanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,816 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 Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 176,964 Imperial Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, all the playground's a stage for Faramanian schoolchildren, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Lion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Faramount's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Faramount is ranked 13,155th in the world and 9th in Eurth for Most Secular, with 78.92 Atheism Rate.
