|Capital||Far Far Away|
|Leader||Neville John Holder MBE|
The TOTP of MyFriendiStan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Neville John Holder MBE with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.635 billion MyFriendiStanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Far Far Away. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient MyFriendiStanian economy, worth 327 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,016 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Dining out often involves falcons on the plate no matter what you order, the price of freedom is about half a million florins, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MyFriendiStan's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Slade.
