The Holy Islamic Empire of Fararabistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Mohammadhassan I with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 8.53 billion Fararabistanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shātī. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient FarArabiStani economy, worth 886 trillion Kākhā's a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,920 Kākhā's, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, nations that kill a Fararabistanian can expect a strongly worded letter, nudity is frowned upon, and most ambassadors from Fararabistan retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fararabistan's national animal is the Thād, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Fararabistan is ranked 12,325th in the world and 618th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 100 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
