The Haiku Guru of Fuentana is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Baron Comte von Fontaine IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.601 billion Fuentanans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spring City. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fuentanan economy, worth 293 trillion Fantas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,978 Fantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, students abandon classrooms for online education, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fuentana's national animal is the domestic cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Postmodern Catholic Paulinism.

Fuentana is ranked 140,950th in the world and 3,850th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33 on the Rand Index.
