The Federal Republic of Fiwchuk is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jemma with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.859 billion Fiwchukians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palm Springs. The average income tax rate is 32.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Fiwchukian economy, worth 459 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 160,867 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fiwchuk's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Satanism.
