The Kingdom of Faramount is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mateo Terusio with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.645 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, prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 1,336 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, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 174,837 Imperial Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment. Crime is well under control. 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 1,723rd in the world and 2nd in Greater Ixnay for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 17,907.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
