The Red Lucky Holy Planet of Fauxia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.895 billion Fauxians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,903 trillion gold bar asteroids a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,959 gold bar asteroids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the moon vampire cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 5,336th in the world and 155th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Incomes, with 213,959.38 Standard Monetary Units.
