The Republic of Fictional is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 239 million 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 medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Fictionalian economy, worth 3.39 trillion wefwefwefs 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 slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. 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 14,198 wefwefwefs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, Fictionalian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations, and burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside. 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 118,500th in the world and 66th in 555 for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -4.47 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
