The Borderlands of Father When Can I Leave To Be On My Own is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 534 million Gays are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Miniato. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Gayish economy, worth 24.7 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,209 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children often kick Lions for amusement, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, third world countries are rich in "I Love San Miniato" t-shirts, and the nation's teens are known for their habit of kissing through plastic wrap. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Father When Can I Leave To Be On My Own's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Father When Can I Leave To Be On My Own is ranked 214,580th in the world and 291st in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
