The Federal Republic of Fishergate is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.245 billion Fishergateans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marlborough. The average income tax rate is 28.2%.

The powerhouse Fishergatean economy, worth 130 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 104,684 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime is totally unknown. Fishergate's national animal is the goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fishergate is ranked 3,759th in the world and 8th in Thaecia for Most Influential, scoring 15,751 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
