The Perso-Babylonian Empire of Furonistan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kurush XIII with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.746 billion Furonistanis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The Furonistani economy, worth 90.6 trillion Darics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 51,901 Darics, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 230,822 per year while the poor average 7,266, a ratio of 31.8 to 1.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, and democratic debates have been removed from the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Furonistan's national animal is the Lamassu, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Yarsanism.

Furonistan is ranked 28,893rd in the world and 6th in Union of Liberal Nations for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 75.55 Workforce Participation Rate.
