Population543 million



The Commonwealth of Fasire is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 543 million Fasireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fasiropolis. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Fasirean economy, worth 21.0 trillion pesos 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 38,724 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the Betamax versus VHS debate continues to rage strongly in Fasire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fasire's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fasire is ranked 156,361st in the world and 6,339th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -84 on the Rand Index.
