The Most Gilt Republic of Fhaengshia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Ahliero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.415 billion Fhaengshians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense, Environment, and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fhaendhaw. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Fhaengshian economy, worth a remarkable 1,272 trillion Szchequinns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 288,229 Szchequinns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,947,732 per year while the poor average 15,773, a ratio of 123 to 1.

The entire entry for Fhaengshia in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Fhaengshia's national animal is the Wyvern Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shih.

Fhaengshia is ranked 12,636th in the world and 236th in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 81.74 quips per hour.
