The Fargo of Major-Tom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Larry with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.633 billion blehs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bleh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.6%.

The thriving Major-Tomian economy, worth 614 trillion Klubecks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 92,701 Klubecks, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Major-Tom's national animal is the bleh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Major-Tom is ranked 29,358th in the world and 3rd in Arizona for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 238,642.94 Standard Monetary Units.
