The Holy Empire of Fivme is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Il Duce with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.83 billion Fivmeni are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magna. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fivmeno economy, worth 830 trillion Lirums a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,860 Lirums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

People think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, polite commuters on the Magna Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fivme's national animal is the Aquila, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fascism.

Fivme is ranked 119,908th in the world and 3rd in Orsa for Safest, scoring 46.38 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
