The Epicness of Folkmore is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by taylor swift with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, disturbing lack of elderly people, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 979 million folkmoreans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of wonderland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.4%.

The very strong Folkmorean economy, worth 74.2 trillion hoaxes 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 large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 75,757 hoaxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,085 per year while the poor average 20,771, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

T-shirts displaying a photo of taylor swift performing the Full-Monty are selling out, Folkmorean Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and Taylor swift has just been declared ruler of Folkmore in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Folkmore's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Folkmore is ranked 17,724th in the world and 453rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Influential, scoring 2,679 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
