The Incorporated States of Farkarkay is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.688 billion Farkarkayians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Administration, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 24.3%.

The Farkarkayian economy, worth 69.5 trillion Latinums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,179 Latinums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects, schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit, polygamy is legal, and criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Farkarkay's national animal is the Black Widow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Farkarkay is ranked 231,078th in the world and 9,358th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.7 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
