The People's Republic of Forcarol9 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Bob9 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.678 billion Forcarol9ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midton9. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.7%.

The all-consuming Forcarol9ian economy, worth 433 trillion Chamfered Bezels a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 117,875 Chamfered Bezels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 423,970 per year while the poor average 23,457, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, smog in Midton9 is so bad that fresh air bottles are sold by street vendors, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forcarol9's national animal is the Gazebo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gazeboism.

Forcarol9 is ranked 126,989th in the world and 5,041st in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,254.66 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
