The Disputed Territories of FH Ay is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.857 billion FH Ayians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient FH Ayian economy, worth 192 trillion Szchequinns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 103,877 Szchequinns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FH Ay's national animal is the Dugong, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

FH Ay is ranked 176,036th in the world and 316th in Nihon for Most Average, scoring 31.15 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
