The Democratic Republic of Farmina is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Malcolm Prince with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 35.969 billion Farminans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verica. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Farminan economy, worth an astonishing 11,670 trillion Harens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 324,468 Harens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, Farmina isn't what it used to be, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Farmina's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Farmina is ranked 245,342nd in the world and 8,465th in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1.03 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
