The Holy Fundamentalist Kingdom of Fornders is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Wattson II with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.945 billion nders 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hawthorne. The average income tax rate is 23.7%.

The frighteningly efficient nder economy, worth 553 trillion ndenian silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,252 ndenian silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to nder politicians, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown. Fornders's national animal is the leontinese black eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Fornders is ranked 127,435th in the world and 29th in Novo Brasil for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 112.2 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
