The Perso-Babylonian Empire of Furonistan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kurush XIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.124 billion Furonistanis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The strong Furonistani economy, worth 135 trillion Averoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 64,011 Averoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 295,083 per year while the poor average 8,399, a ratio of 35.1 to 1.

Shock troops shock enemy forces with their nudity, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, Furonistanis are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of Furonistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Furonistan's national animal is the Lamassu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yarsanism.

Furonistan is ranked 163,800th in the world and 18th in Union of Liberal Nations for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -8.37 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
