The Federal Republic of Farverlag is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Hansie Windoek with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 916 million Farverlagers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ragburg. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Farverlager economy, worth 56.8 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. Average income is 62,041 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Farverlag's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Farverlag is ranked 19,333rd in the world and 545th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,273.11 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
