The Kung of FU is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.739 billion FUians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 20.3%.

The strong FUian economy, worth 478 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,806 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. FU's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

FU is ranked 77,555th in the world and 25th in European Union for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.88 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
