Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Faviola is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jason Grey with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.49 billion Faviolans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Faviolan economy, worth 185 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 124,473 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 565,201 per year while the poor average 16,789, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Faviola's national animal is the black bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Faviola is ranked 121,759th in the world and 6,469th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 102.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
