The Scary Nightmare of Fizban is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Efernaldred Koran Collins with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.979 billion Fizbans 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, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 13th and Hellville Ave. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fizbanian economy, worth 424 trillion skulls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 142,367 skulls, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in 13th and Hellville Ave for fear of causing a fuss, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Fizban's national animal is the Gargoyle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pentagrams.

Fizban is ranked 14,352nd in the world and 800th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.55 on the Human Development Index.
