The Federal Republic of Fartslamdump is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.325 billion Fartslamdumpians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 50.2%.
The powerhouse Fartslamdumpian economy, worth 112 trillion dumpieses a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 85,072 dumpieses, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.
Leader has just been declared ruler of Fartslamdump in an international press conference, survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown. Fartslamdump's national animal is the Kakapo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
