The Tiny Village of Fartsniffage is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sir Digby Chicken Caeser with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 38.18 billion Fartsniffageans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bishops Itchington. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The strong Fartsniffagean economy, worth a remarkable 8,356 trillion Wombats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,861 Wombats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", and quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces. 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 291,737th in the world and 308th in Forest for Best Weather, with -539 meters of sunlight.
