The Nether Kingdom of Folgrath is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Firwof Kromwell with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.82 billion Folishes enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flaresworth. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Folgrathian economy, worth 353 trillion Netherwarts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,198 Netherwarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and gun ownership is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Folgrath's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Folgrath is ranked 6,681st in the world and 1st in The Wolf Clan for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,710.74 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
