The Republic of Fissure Town is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Kazmaniac with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.953 billion Fissure Townians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fisstopia. The average income tax rate is 25.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Fissure Townian economy, worth 238 trillion Dogecoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,204 Dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Commercial ships often report keel and hull damage from coral reef impacts, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fissure Town's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Fissure Town is ranked 91,563rd in the world and 2,183rd in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 48.24394134608 Days.
