The Republic of The Defender of Truth Fox News is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tucker Carlson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.63 billion Defender of Truth Fox Newsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Defender of Truth Fox Newsian economy, worth a remarkable 6,214 trillion reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 352,513 reichsmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,100,302 per year while the poor average 86,715, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

The general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Defender of Truth Fox News's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Cosmic Skull.

The Defender of Truth Fox News is ranked 4,188th in the world and 7th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 590.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
