The Empire of Farus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chate Hinestone with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 9.901 billion Farusians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geneva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The powerhouse Farusian economy, worth 760 trillion Credits a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 76,856 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 344,312 per year while the poor average 10,621, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, public urination is on the increase, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and chain casinos dominate the national gambling market. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Farus's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Farus is ranked 119,692nd in the world and 107th in The Kingdom of Denmark for Highest Drug Use, scoring 49 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
