Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Tiny Village of Fartsniffage is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Digby Chicken Caeser with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.037 billion Fartsniffageans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bishops Itchington. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Fartsniffagean economy, worth a remarkable 2,938 trillion Wombats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,236 Wombats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fartsniffage's national animal is the Aardvark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Prince Philip Movementism.

Fartsniffage is ranked 11,563rd in the world and 1st in A quiet spot in the clouds for Most Influential, scoring 2,477 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
