The Skadi Church of The Three States of Fortuna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Commander Lyone with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, lack of airports, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.419 billion Fortunans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Destino. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Fortunan economy, worth a remarkable 7,186 trillion Trutas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 466,061 Trutas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government employees from The Three States of Fortuna dominate international lumberjack competitions, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, and exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Three States of Fortuna's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Skadism.

The Three States of Fortuna is ranked 235,046th in the world and 10,773rd in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.47 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
