The Xin-Fael Federation of Fiercewood is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.499 billion Xin-Fael enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haijing. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xin-Fael economy, worth a remarkable 2,037 trillion Yuanbaos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 177,222 Yuanbaos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime is totally unknown. Fiercewood's national animal is the Shenlong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various.

Fiercewood is ranked 21,594th in the world and 44th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,318.52 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
