The Socialist Monarchy of Fahrul is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.401 billion Fahrulians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strine. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fahrulian economy, worth 389 trillion Soliduses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 162,423 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and dozens of viewers tune in weekly to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fahrul's national animal is the Golden Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fahrul is ranked 35,418th in the world and 717th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 410.9997022378 Days.
