The Holy Empire of Forgland is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 634 million Forglandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Forglandian economy, worth 39.4 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,176 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, adultery has been made a capital offence, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forgland's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Forgland is ranked 161,590th in the world and 8,892nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 64.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
