The Dominion of Farklore is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dominator Phillip Phollicle with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.835 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, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Farklorean economy, worth 642 trillion crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 167,608 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the government is a law unto itself, and abattoirs are running at full capacity in response to skyrocketing demand. 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 137,945th in the world and 167th in Wintreath for Most Politically Free, scoring 28 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
