The Rogue Nation of Fart Is Speed is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 166 million Fart Is Speedians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Fart Is Speedian economy, worth 6.99 trillion Whiffs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 42,112 Whiffs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and FIS-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fart Is Speed's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fart Is Speed is ranked 38,889th in the world and 10th in Iran for Healthiest Citizens, with 5.87 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
