The Incorporated States of Favored is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mason with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.054 billion Favoredians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Favoredian economy, worth 387 trillion stones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,827 stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, and veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Favored's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Favored is ranked 170,091st in the world and 7,810th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 30.38 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
