The Grand Duchy of Fardland Mark 2 is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 374 million Fardland Mark 2ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople 2. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Fardland Mark 2ian economy, worth 41.7 trillion fards 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 111,450 fards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who want to celebrate the holidays generally deck the halls with old newspaper trimmings and dirty socks, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, and people talk about things being better when men were men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fardland Mark 2's national animal is the puker, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fardland Mark 2 is ranked 50,529th in the world and 76th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 65.26 on the Human Development Index.
