The Galactic Republic of Fantoa is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Yost with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.104 billion Fantoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eagle Center. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Fantoan economy, worth a remarkable 4,085 trillion Penings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 238,838 Penings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 951,089 per year while the poor average 40,400, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Foreign musicians that Chancellor Yost dislikes are turned away at the border, there are no bananas today in Fantoa, the military has declared war on all religious influence, and oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Fantoa's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is No religion.

Fantoa is ranked 148,358th in the world and 7,168th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 39.71 Workforce Participation Rate.
