The Republic of Fissure Town is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Kazmaniac with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.733 billion Fisstownians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fisstopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fisstownian economy, worth 675 trillion Dogecoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 181,006 Dogecoins, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fissure Town's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Fissure Town is ranked 8,270th in the world and 467th in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 181,006.11 Standard Monetary Units.
