The Diktatur of Fitand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Friedrich Müller with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.467 billion Fitishes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neue Foxinia. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fitandian economy, worth 329 trillion Deutsche marks 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 133,615 Deutsche marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and billions of Deutsche marks are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fitand's national animal is the Roter Fuchs, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheismus.

Fitand is ranked 217,430th in the world and 146th in OmniOne for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
