The Technocracy of Fauxia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Unit 1391 with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.448 billion Fauxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Designated Area 66. The average income tax rate is 79.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth 749 trillion credits 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 major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,487 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The might of the entire Fauxian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fauxia is ranked 53,514th in the world and 1,785th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 72.66 Workforce Participation Rate.
