The Republic of Faraway Fort is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 170 million Farafortoes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Farafortese economy, worth 6.19 trillion relagas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,420 relagas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Faraway Fort City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Faraway Fort's national animal is the hummingbird.

Faraway Fort is ranked 81,542nd in the world and 3,614th in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.37 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
