CapitalFengate City
LeaderEmperor David I


The Empire of Fengate is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor David I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 44.786 billion Fengateans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fengatean economy, worth a remarkable 6,198 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 138,407 fens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no 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 26,959th in the world and 882nd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 74.44 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
