The Armed Republic of Fickonong is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9 million Fickeriches 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 relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.6%.

The strong Fickonongian economy, worth 525 billion Fickingers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 58,376 Fickingers, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Attempted suicide is punishable by public hanging, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Fickonong's national animal is the Schwanzlurch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fickonong is ranked 213,036th in the world and 4th in Der Nationenkonvent for Most Beautiful Environments, with 291.84 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
