The Commune of Firaxin is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.53 billion Firaxinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Firax. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Firaxinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,022 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 156,590 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firaxin's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Firaxin is ranked 217,857th in the world and 7,634th in Balder for Least Corrupt Governments, with 61.08 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
