The Empire of Fengate is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor David I with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 34.498 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fengate City. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fengatean economy, worth a remarkable 4,889 trillion fens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,742 fens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Straitjackets are a common religious garb, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime is totally unknown. Fengate's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fengate is ranked 161,285th in the world and 8,186th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 17.63 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
