The Dominion of Farklore is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dominator Phillip Phollicle with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.243 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Finkleton. The average income tax rate is 71.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Farklorean economy, worth 745 trillion crowns a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 175,689 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, Farklore is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 81,172nd in the world and 81st in Wintreath for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,701.24 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
