The Federal Republic of Fiwchuk is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jemma with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.083 billion Fiwchukians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palm Springs. The average income tax rate is 32.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Fiwchukian economy, worth 504 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 163,781 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fiwchuk's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Satanism.

Fiwchuk is ranked 747th in the world and 6th in New Western Empire for Rudest Citizens, with 351.12 Insults Per Minute.
