The Federation of The Fair Republic is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Scott Selby with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.31 billion Fair Republicians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vis Vires. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fair Republician economy, worth a remarkable 1,970 trillion Dunlaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 174,214 Dunlaps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Vis Vires, and the government defends a woman's right to choose. Crime is totally unknown. The Fair Republic's national animal is the Toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

The Fair Republic is ranked 207,922nd in the world and 1,020th in Europe for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -35.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
