The Dictatorship of The Fawstian Imperium is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 311 million Fawstians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Capital of Ghaxaq. The average income tax rate is 33.5%.

The strong Fawstian economy, worth 21.3 trillion Fawstmarks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,538 Fawstmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children are expected to carve their own toys, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Fawstian Imperium's national animal is the Greenfinch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Fawstian Imperium is ranked 20,434th in the world and 12th in The Iron Confederacy for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,778.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
