Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Monastic Theocracy of Fyrdowsi is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Clerical Council X with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 16.437 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adl Justia. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The large but stagnant Fyrdowsian economy, worth 867 trillion deenars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 52,766 deenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, Clerical Council X lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 151,652nd in the world and 5,602nd in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 0.94 Obesity Rate.
