The Antithesis of Reality of Fictional is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.551 billion Fictionalians 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Fictionalian economy, worth 78.0 trillion wefwefwefs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 30,570 wefwefwefs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fictional's national animal is the wefwefwef, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fictional is ranked 119,223rd in the world and 4,115th in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 197.33 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
