The Barbaric Magnificence of Fafhrd is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Fafhrd with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.238 billion Lankmarts 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 tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cold Corner. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lankmartan economy, worth an astonishing 14,694 trillion gold rilks 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 Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 502,572 gold rilks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,009,289 per year while the poor average 84,456, a ratio of 23.8 to 1.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million gold rilk battlesuits, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Cold Corner to enjoy their national art, children are expected to carve their own toys, and labour strikes are routinely squashed by police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fafhrd's national animal is the snow snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kos.

Fafhrd is ranked 378th in the world and 6th in Eladen for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 16,736.07 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
