The Corporatocracy of Fauntenheddo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Raymond Barreau with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.642 billion Fauntenheddoans 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunshine City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauntenheddoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,013 trillion rands a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 278,331 rands, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,931,576 per year while the poor average 14,031, a ratio of 137 to 1.

Businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Sunshine City as a backdrop, bar brawls are an hourly occurrence, and knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fauntenheddo's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Consumerism.

Fauntenheddo is ranked 57,068th in the world and 1,972nd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,031.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
