The Democratic Socialist Union of Poulton-with-Fearnhead is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kiril Mikhailov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.412 billion Varcarians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dheaxeev. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Poulton-with-Fearnheadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,218 trillion Færns 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an amazing 235,662 Færns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Ghosts into functioning members of society, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, they say insanity is torturing the same citizens over and over again and expecting a different result, and young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poulton-with-Fearnhead's national animal is the Ghost, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Poulton-with-Fearnhead is ranked 32,010th in the world and 108th in Europeia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 265,418 Standard Monetary Units.
