The Red Lucky Holy Planet of Fauxia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.551 billion Fauxians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,116 trillion gold bar asteroids a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,623 gold bar asteroids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the moon vampire cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 135,763rd in the world and 4,315th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 883.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
