The Holy Empire of Forsakery is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nikolai The Great with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.467 billion Forsakeryians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Forsaken City. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Forsakeryian economy, worth 189 trillion Dirhams a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,375 Dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, the clergy of Catholicism remains a single-sex institution, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forsakery's national animal is the Guarį Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Forsakery is ranked 14,034th in the world and 811th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 81.92 on the Human Development Index.
