Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Foraldn is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Gordon XII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.63 billion Foralders are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ennington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Foraldnian economy, worth 553 trillion British Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 152,419 British Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists on vacation find a major religion's scriptures make useful doorstops, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting, and no one born in Foraldn can fix a leaky faucet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Foraldn's national animal is the Sparrow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Foraldn is ranked 121,576th in the world and 5,890th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.48 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
