The Empire of Fengate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor David I with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 37.753 billion Fengateans 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Environment, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fengate City. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fengatean economy, worth a remarkable 5,354 trillion fens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,819 fens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime is totally unknown. Fengate's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fengate is ranked 200,111th in the world and 9,609th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
