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 iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 15.362 billion Fyrdowsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 large but stagnant Fyrdowsian economy, worth 457 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 29,777 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 116,573rd in the world and 5,803rd in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -103.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
