The Socialist Republic of Folenz is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade Catullus Industrius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 5.265 billion Folenzians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Magnus et Pulcher. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Folenzian economy, worth 650 trillion dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 123,497 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, entire provinces are populated solely by nuclear missile technicians and military police, the fate of the world literally rests on Comrade Catullus Industrius's fingers, and the Folenzian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Folenz's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is socialist realism.

Folenz is ranked 649th in the world and 28th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 27,112.33 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
