The People's Holy Republic of Forunte is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Ким Чын Ир with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.343 billion Forunteans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Smoke. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Foruntean economy, worth 30.4 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 22,634 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forunte's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Forunte is ranked 107,474th in the world and 5,722nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 635.01 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
