The Owl Principality of Fooooooooo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Fuzzy the Owl with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.282 billion Foooooooooans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ribe. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The powerhouse Foooooooooan economy, worth a remarkable 2,693 trillion Owl Pellets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 102,471 Owl Pellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, and Foooooooooan politicians spend a lot of time praising East Lebatuckese policies these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fooooooooo's national animal is the Clog Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fooooooooo is ranked 19,556th in the world and 1,036th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 83.11 on the Human Development Index.
