The Dominion of Farklore is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dominator Phillip Phollicle with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.066 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Finkleton. The average income tax rate is 48.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Farklorean economy, worth a remarkable 1,551 trillion crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 192,403 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses, and cute fluffy little Dominator Phillip Phollicles are increasingly popular exotic pets. 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 24,762nd in the world and 91st in Wintreath for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 3,213.56 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
