The Allied States of Forvistan is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 734 million Forvistanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariorith. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Forvistanian economy, worth 66.4 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,518 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Idyllic countryside scenes see border collies herding sixty-ton dinosaurs, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, and concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forvistan's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Forvistan is ranked 243,759th in the world and 9,415th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -11.12 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
