The United Republic of Farokand is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 561 million Farokandis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faroi. The average income tax rate is 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Farokandi economy, worth 58.4 trillion Farokandi kredits 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, 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 104,074 Farokandi kredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime is totally unknown. Farokand's national animal is the Farokandi camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Farokand is ranked 195,692nd in the world and 28th in Kavonia for Fattest Citizens, with 9.65 Obesity Rate.
