The Blessed Kingdom of Fotinia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by God-King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.527 billion Fotinians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svet. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Fotinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,168 trillion monetas a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 211,395 monetas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,724,678 per year while the poor average 5,609, a ratio of 307 to 1.

It is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, and government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Fotinia's national animal is the Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Divine Royalism.

Fotinia is ranked 78,528th in the world and 2,107th in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,712.3 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
