The People's Holy Republic of Forunte is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Ким Чын Ир with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.322 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 59.0 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 25,422 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, and countless government officials are accused of espionage. 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 150,075th in the world and 7,514th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 5.69 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
