The People's Democratic Union of The Fordines is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Representative Florent Nollan with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.087 billion Forde enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fordinstek. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Fordin economy, worth a remarkable 1,099 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 180,689 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, transgender and agender are on the education agenda, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Fordines's national animal is the Fordin Greater Porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Fordines is ranked 1,330th in the world and 1st in Middle North Atlantic Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.14 on the Human Development Index.
