The Theocracy of Fushiya is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 194 million Fushingeses 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 Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.8%.

The strong Fushiyan economy, worth 11.7 trillion Turveks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,407 Turveks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 181,687 per year while the poor average 15,670, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names, loading sixteen tons of laundry gets you another year older and deeper in debt, contestants on Fushiya's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fushiya's national animal is the Fushingese Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fushiya is ranked 43,873rd in the world and 84th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,391.52 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
