The Mango Mega Corporation of Fruitful is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.722 billion Fruitfuls are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangzilia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fruitful economy, worth 327 trillion MangoCoin™s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 189,963 MangoCoin™s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,110,889 per year while the poor average 15,247, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fruitful's national animal is the Kardashian, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fruitful is ranked 3,210th in the world and 36th in Europeia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 33 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
