The Imperial Republic of Fordana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Minos Callides with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.65 billion Fordans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 72.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fordan economy, worth a remarkable 1,744 trillion gold pennies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 180,810 gold pennies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year. Crime is totally unknown. Fordana's national animal is the cardinal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is European Orthodox.

Fordana is ranked 7,133rd in the world and 3rd in Official European Union for Highest Economic Output, with 1,744 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
