The Dominion of Fourside is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, fear of technology, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 726 million Foursideans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 33.4%.

The thriving Foursidean economy, worth 62.5 trillion stamps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 86,047 stamps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fourside's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Fourside is ranked 86,531st in the world and 2nd in Robot Industries for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
