The Red Lucky Holy Planet of Fauxia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.344 billion Fauxians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fauxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,023 trillion gold bar asteroids a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 216,586 gold bar asteroids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Planespotters are emigrating in droves, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fauxia's national animal is the moon vampire cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Fauxia is ranked 230,096th in the world and 7,069th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10.3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
