Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dominion of Farklore is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dominator Phillip Phollicle with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.133 billion Farklorites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Finkleton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Farklorean economy, worth 499 trillion crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 159,315 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, Dominator Phillip Phollicle affectionately nicknames supporters by number, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Farklore's national animal is the red dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sol Invictus.

Farklore is ranked 4,542nd in the world and 8th in Wintreath for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 11,401 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
