The Owl Principality of Fooooooooo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Fuzzy the Owl with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 24.229 billion Foooooooooans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ribe. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Foooooooooan economy, worth a remarkable 1,857 trillion Owl Pellets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,674 Owl Pellets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. 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 150,776th in the world and 5,418th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 27.22 on the Rand Index.
