The Democratic Republic of Farmina is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Malcolm Prince with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 32.16 billion Farminans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verica. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Farminan economy, worth an astonishing 10,746 trillion Harens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 334,154 Harens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 974,777 per year while the poor average 90,511, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. 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. Farmina's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Farmina is ranked 2,088th in the world and 98th in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 85.25 Workforce Participation Rate.
