The Holy Blue Empire of Fotisdia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 663 million Fotisdians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nas Osanna. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fotisdian economy, worth 77.7 trillion Kleiniums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,267 Kleiniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, religious education is a new government priority, and movie references are legally admissible in court. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fotisdia's national animal is the Bat with a B, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fotisdia is ranked 260,656th in the world and 8,454th in the West Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
