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 rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.907 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 Law & Order, Administration, 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Foruntean economy, worth 43.7 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 22,903 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's scientifically provable that Foruntean guys don't know how to make a woman happy, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. 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 36,737th in the world and 1,722nd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,641.36 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
