The Homebrewer of Fuentana is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Baron Comte von Fontaine II Jr with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, soft-spoken computers, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.956 billion Fuentanans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Fuentanan economy, worth 585 trillion books a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 148,110 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, farting etiquette is taught in schools, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and in a baffling press conference Baron Comte von Fontaine II Jr proudly dismantled a broken door. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fuentana's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Postmodern Catholic Paulinism.

Fuentana is ranked 234th in the world and 10th in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2,656.63 Bank.
