The Dominion of Farklore is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dominator Phillip Phollicle with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.992 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 Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Farklorean economy, worth 891 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,665 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, and national magistrates in Finkleton are overwhelmed with cases of petty larceny and attempted witchcraft. 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 163,592nd in the world and 253rd in Wintreath for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -9.49 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
