Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Clerical Council X with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The compassionate, devout population of 15.932 billion Fyrdowsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Fyrdowsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion deenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Cheese Exports industry. Average income is 72,493 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library, and the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fyrdowsi's national animal is the camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Submissio Pacem.

Fyrdowsi is ranked 179,524th in the world and 7,932nd in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.16 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
