The Disputed Territories of Fodotang is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 299 million Fodotangians 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 enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Fodotangian economy, worth 8.60 trillion wehens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 28,767 wehens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, planespotters are emigrating in droves, and foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fodotang's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fodotang is ranked 221,936th in the world and 31st in The Story of Civilization for Rudest Citizens, with 16.85 Insults Per Minute.
