The Empire of Fengate is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor David I with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 41.837 billion Fengateans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Environment, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fengate City. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fengatean economy, worth a remarkable 5,810 trillion fens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,892 fens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime is totally unknown. Fengate's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fengate is ranked 194,673rd in the world and 9,911th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
