The Empire of Fazrin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aslan with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.332 billion Fazrinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merlox. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fazrinian economy, worth 867 trillion Merloxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 200,283 Merloxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, priests are being drafted by the church load, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fazrin's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Fazrin is ranked 2,581st in the world and 112th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 25.52 bananas ingested per day.
