The Republic of Formenor is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ėarendu with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.327 billion Formenoreans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altalaire. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Formenorian economy, worth 759 trillion Laurės a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,560 Laurės, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Formenor's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Formenor is ranked 6,767th in the world and 144th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,968.92 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
