The Hidden Ascendancy of Fog Field is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Haze with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.041 billion Fog Fieldians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cloudy City. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fog Fieldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 trillion Droplets a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,123 Droplets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fog Field's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vaporism.

Fog Field is ranked 6,469th in the world and 6th in South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.3 on the Human Development Index.
