The Armed Republic of Fjoortybert is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tedd with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.439 billion Fjoortybertiens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guackybert. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fjoortybertian economy, worth 187 trillion Fjoors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 130,478 Fjoors, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, economists claim no news is good news, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and straitjackets are a common religious garb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fjoortybert's national animal is the Santa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fjoortybert is ranked 127,206th in the world and 182nd in The United Federations for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -33.83 on the Hayek Index.
