The Queendom of FTS is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.273 billion FTSians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant FTSian economy, worth 112 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 15,498 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, gambling is outlawed, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FTS's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

FTS is ranked 197,435th in the world and 320th in Hsiao Han for Most Developed, scoring 44.08 on the Human Development Index.
