The United Socialist States of Fortilder is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 578 million fortilderians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortilder City. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Fortilderian economy, worth 30.1 trillion franks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,068 franks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fortilder's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fortilder is ranked 121,375th in the world and 218th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
