The Homebrewer of Fuentana is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Baron Comte von Fontaine II Jr with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.962 billion Fuentanans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spring City. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Fuentanan economy, worth 588 trillion books a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 148,559 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a baffling press conference Baron Comte von Fontaine II Jr proudly dismantled a broken door, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Fuentana has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fuentana's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Postmodern Catholic Paulinism.

Fuentana is ranked 180,649th in the world and 1,687th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 49.1 billion Standard Monetary Units.
