The Archipelagic Kingdom of Foir is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.586 billion Foirians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clamont. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Foirian economy, worth 108 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 68,562 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Tax rises are attributed to divine will, days begin with afternoon tea, trained plumber-burglars will clean out your blocked pipes and your jewellery boxes, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Foir's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
