The Winking Lizard of Fizban is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Efernaldred Koran Collins with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.753 billion Fizbans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh-Morpork. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fizbanian economy, worth 838 trillion septums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 176,474 septums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government, and trespassers entering Efernaldred Koran Collins's office are immediately vaporized. Crime is totally unknown. Fizban's national animal is the Gorfursyat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thaumaturgy.

Fizban is ranked 193,977th in the world and 8,418th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -305.33 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
