The Armed Republic of Fumathan is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.268 billion Fumathanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.0%.

The very strong Fumathanian economy, worth 344 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 65,404 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 206,150 per year while the poor average 15,862, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

Anyone found to be unemployed is shipped off to Brasilistan with a gun and a spade, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fumathan's national animal is the wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Fumathan is ranked 56,132nd in the world and 24th in Crassia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 81.24 on the Hayek Index.
