The Socialist Monarchy of Fahrul is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.387 billion Fahrulians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strine. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fahrulian economy, worth 384 trillion Soliduses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,275 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fahrul's national animal is the Golden Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fahrul is ranked 202,489th in the world and 8,710th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 39.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
