The Commonwealth of Fordlandis is a very large, safe nation, notable for its smutty television and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 178 million Fordlandisians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 27.2%.

The strong Fordlandisian economy, worth 8.26 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 46,383 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fordlandis's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fordlandis is ranked 120,378th in the world and 6,433rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 59.75 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
